Not sure if this is a monitor or graphics card issue?

I have MSI 8800GTS OC 512MB and Acer AL2216W 22" Widescreen LCD.

After a few minutes of playing a game at max res 1680x1050, PC will freeze. The only way I figured out to stop the freezing is to enable Vsync in game...but I would prefer to not have to do this because I am limited to 60fps.

I thought it may have been a heat issue with my vidcard, so I used Riva Tuner to jack the fan speed up to 60% and that got my GPU atleast 10 degrees cooler, but that didn't help my situation.

Anyone have any ideas why this may be happening?

Yes forgot to mention I'm using latest Nvidia drivers.

Damnit, I just froze up again running 3Dmark05 CPU test, so I'm guessing this isn't a videocard or monitor issue, it's an OC issue. Off to the OC forum I go :D
