Sounds like your settings are too high or you are operating the gpu clock or the memory clock faster than the card can work the game, causing it to lose the signal and then to restart runtime. Open Catalyst Control Center, go to ATI Overdrive and reduce the GPU and the Memory Clocks.

Download and use these:

Prime95, plus HWMonitor = Prime95 will stress your system to make sure it is stable and running cool. HWMonitor does the temp reading for you.

3DMark Vantage = This will benchmark your system to see it's gaming performance

PCMark Vantage = This will benchmakr your system to see it's overall performance

HDTuner = Will provide a benchmark on your hard drives performance.

The CPU test should go incredibly slow, like 2 FPS (frames per second)

whitefang is correct, your CPU test will go very slow as for FPS.

Your overall score looks acceptable for your CPU and a single card setup of an ATI 5770. If you go to submit your score, you will see how your system compares against similar setups and similar scores & their setups. The software is a benchmarking tool to compare your system to others. Example: my score is 22,000 but I'm running an i7 920 (@ 3.2 Ghz) and dual Nvidia GTX 260 Core 216 SC video cards, so I should be higher.

You might also run memtest86+ to test the memory. It should run at least a full pas with NO errors.

On prime95, select "check for rounding errors" option. Run it long enough for the heat to build and stabilize. You should get NO rounding errors.

Download and install the latest ati video drivers from their web site. The supplied CD will not have the latest fixes that might address your issues.
