I see you're using the latest driver (10.8)...
Now try use the older driver like 10.3 or 10.4, that's the most stable driver for now.
Uninstall your current driver and make sure you use DriverSweeper before installing the new one.

Did you check the card temps? It could be an overheating...

checked that with sensors on my fans and with mnaual temps. plus the cooling i have is less than 2 months old.

Ahh i've used them before and temps were at a decent rate, cant remember teh actual degrees but i know it wasnt stupidly high to be over heating. luckily i am on warranty till april next year so i'll RMA it. Thanks for the advice!
