It happens for youtube videos, WoW, almost any thing that requires video. I run my monitor at 1360x768 and i got well over enough power i got a 700w Raidmax PSU. As far as the drivers go i got the up to date driver version 10.8 which is the most recent.

What are your card's idle clock speeds ? (they should be 157/300 by default)

Maybe your card is defective then.
Can you test it in another system or test a different card in your system ? If you can't,then RMA it
