Hello everyone, so i built a new computer 3 week ago. So when ever i play either SC2 or WoW 5-20 min later my screen turns black but i can still here the game sound in my headphone. I know the computer didnt restart or anything. I have updated my driver to 10.8 and stock setting on my xfx HD 5850 card. Can anyone tell me whats wrong or should i RMA back to xfx or newegg and see if that helps.

I've got the exact same issue as you with the XFX 5850.
My specs are
Corsair 6gig ram @ 1600hz
Asus P6X58D-E Mobo
Corsair HX-750 PSU
G.Skill Pheonix pro ssd
Samsung 1tb f3
Win 7 Pro 64bit
It seems a lot of people have been having these issues, particularly with Sapphire/XFX 5800 series. I've attempted many things like different drivers, making sure mobo drivers are up to date, nothing seems to work..
I've also tried installing XP and the same thing happens.
If you find a fix let me know cause otherwise I'm gonna RMA it also
I have an ATI Raedon HD 5850, and it's crashing not on games, but on videos, such as Xfire or YouTube. It even crashed on iTunes while I was listening to music! It keeps repeating the same sound over and over again, and it turns into a screen of one color. I've seen it either light gray, or green so far.
