Are you running the latest driver from nVidia? Check your RAM, if 2 sticks, try one at a time and in different slots. Could also run Memtest. Try a different PSU

There has been reports of 8800GTs having crippled drivers, which may potentially causes lock ups. I think you should update to the latest driver from Nvidia's website. If that still doesn't work, try using one of the beta drivers.

One of my friends also had lock up problems. The problem exacerbated, and in the end, he switched to CF 3870s.
