GPU Problem or?

Hey guys,

I'm pretty much stumped with the problem I'm having so I figured I'd bring it to you guys and see if you know what's going on with it. I keep trying to play the game "Darksiders" but it seems like either after about a minute of in game playing or immediately the game crashes my system. The monitors both "go black", I can still hear sound sometimes, or the sound just begins to loop, and only a hard restart will get the computer running again. I think its a Graphics Card issue, but I have no idea how to either fix it, or if it is something that can't be fixed. Anyway, my specs are:

CPU: i5-750, OCed to 3.63
GPU: XFX Radeon 4870
PSU: Corsair 650
Motherboard: Gigabyte P55-UD3R
RAM: 4GB, Duel Channel, GSkill

I'm running the game off Steam, if that makes a difference as well.

Drop your cpu and gpu to stock speeds and try the game again. If it runs well then your oc's are unstable.

Didn't think that would work, but after I put my RAM onto basically UC timings I never had a problem again. Nice to know my RAM can't handle their advertised 1600, 7-7-7-24.
