New cards that don't get TDR or Nvlddmkm errors?

I just built a new system and am constantly getting the Nvlddmkm (Display driver has stopped responding) messages. I have been trying to get around this for 2 weeks now and am finally to the point I am thinking about sending these 2 cards back. I have used newest drivers, OLD drivers, oulled one card, thenm swapped, pulled memory, and swapped, reinstalled windows more than 15 times now. I thought I had it fixed using nvidia driver from may 09, but it started it again today and got 6 in less than 10 minutes. At the time I had WOW running on one screen and Media Center (live tv) on the other monitor. I am tired of trying to fix something I should not be having a problem with in a new system. I have built MANY systems and have never had this.
Anyway, what new video cards out there do not have this problem? I want to keep 2 cards and use DVI to HDMI (but would go with straight HDMI). I have read alot of posts with various cards, ati and nvidia both where others get the same problem and obviously no one has a good fix yet. Looks to me like it is something with the newer chips. My GT 9800 has never had this problem.

Some recommendations would be appreciated.

RMA your card, it seems like hardware issue...

You did see I have 2 cards, right? I think it is more the chips not the cards, that's why I was asking if there are any known new cards that are not having this issue. I don't want to get them replaced and have the same problems with another card.

I have a 2 year old card that just developed this issue and nothing seems to fix it either. So could such a thing really be a card issue?
