Hi, ive had this problem for a while now, and haven´t found an awnser. i bought this GTX Gainward 660TI, worked fine for a couple of weeks but now i get random freezes and ive tried different nVidia driver, completly new harddrive aswell as doing several memtests.
everything ive tried so far hassen´t helpt me, so i tried putting my old gtx 440 while i sent my 660TI to repair (they found nothing)...
i don´t get the complete freezes, but i can get a 3-7 second temporary freeze, but this never happends ingame but in desktop or browsing.
leaning toward a motherboard issue but want some expertise before i decide to spend all my savings on different parts that wont make any difference!

any suggestions would be appriciated! :) 

My specs are:

sabertooth P67
DDR3-1600mhz 2x4GB crosshair vengence
GTX Gainward 660TI
3.4ghz 2600k i7

Your power supply is too weak, or the card is overheating.

i ran it for 4 mins, no overheat no freezes, :/ 
edit: i ran a GPU test whit the OCCT and it found 4100 errors after only 5min, im not sure if this is the best software for test gpu, but it seems fair enough that this has to be the problem?
im kinda angry i put all this time down, i was whitout my 660ti for over a month while they were testing and it feels like they really did´t do anything -.-

i should call them and give them a bantering i guess, cause this has to be the problem right?

cpu for 4 min is great! Call them and explain the card is getting errors & freezes and you would now like a replacement. You run just fine with other the card, the rest of your stuff is good, a defective card can happen.
