I have this same problem too.
The (temporary) fix action I've come up with is to disable multi-GPU. Right-click on your desktop, go to 'Nvidia Control Panel'. You should see an option to switch from multi-GPU to single-GPU.
This fixed the crashing/texture wackiness/BSOD. The card ran fine after that, just not with the performance of dual GPUs.
Now, for you naysayers, I updated my drivers to the latest edition and games that DID work with multi GPU now do NOT work (League of Legends, Borderlands, Age of Conan, etc).
I'm going to try to driver sweep and let you know what I find ..
If anyone knows a better fix for the 9800 GX2, please let us know!
