Every time I download a driver for my Evga Gtx 650 Ti, no matter if the driver is older or newer, I still get the error that the driver stopped responding and has recovered. I only started getting this problem when I upgraded to the i5 3570k CPU. When I had the i3 3220 I had never gotten this error for my GPU. This is odd to me because I don't see how upgrading my CPU could effect my GPU. Does anyone know the problem? No one has been able to steer me in the right direction yet.
Asus Sabertooth Z77
i5 2500k OC'd 4.8Ghz

I too had this same error with my rig. I re-installed clean drivers and even RMA'd my GPU with EVGA. But this did not solve it...
Using EVGA Precision X, I noticed a spike in GPU activity before the crash, when the temp of the card reached 77 degrees, . So I made a custom fan profile using Precision X, so that when temperatures reached 75 degrees, the fan speed increased dramatically to keep temps below 75.
This has FIXED the problem and I haven't had a driver crash since. I dont know why the card spazzed out when it reached 77 degrees... seems a pretty average temp to me. But i guess the card will also last longer keeping it well below 80!
