Everything on it works great except for one big hiccup, the display driver crashes when I play games. At first, I thought it was just one game: World of Warcraft; several minuets into game play, the driver would crash repeatedly until the game would crash. I got blizzard's technical support to help me out with it, they walked me through every idea to diagnose it and fix it. Finally after uninstalling/cleaning my computer of my display driver twice and several other painfully long diagnostics, they came up with the idea of under clocking my GPU. Luckily it worked, for a while... Every now and then (several hours after gaming) the game will crash along with the driver. I currently have it under clocked by 30 MHz via MSI Afterburner.
It's a bit of a pain knowing that it's not fixed and quit tiring to have to open MSI Afterburner every time I start my computer up to make sure it's under clocked.
So far I know there are no memory problems, no heat problems, no hard drive corruptions. Any ideas here? Anyone else had the dreaded TDR error?

If the clock speeds fix it then yes it is the gpu.
I had the exact same thing happen with a GTX 670. It was clocking too high and would crash in some games. Less demanding games(with V-sync on) would not because the card would not have to clock up as high.
