Doom3 crashing with 9800pro

I have the Hercules 9800 pro w/ VGA Silencer rev3 OC'ed to XT speeds and would get artifacts so I downclocked it and they went away. The new issue I'm dealing with is that I want to use some of the Filtering in the game and as soon as I turn it on the game will start to load and then the system just reboots out of no where. Any ideas what would be causing this? Should I just not even try to run any filtering? Thanks in advance.

Don't run any filtering on D3. Though it does look nice it will lay the smack down on a 9800pro. If it runs fine w/o it don't bother w/ it.
Are you even able to get to the menus? or does it crash before you even get there. Just run it at medium quality at 1280x1024, it will look fine.

I'm able to get to the menus just fine. It will usually crash while loading the level or just after it has loaded it.
