So today my GTX 460 768MB arrived, installed it in my already opperating AM3 880g Phenom ii x2 550 build. this build has been up and running for about 2 weeks, the system has been 100% stable, OCed it to 3.5 then did a burn in for 4 hours w/o any errors. I install my gtx 460 and first time it boots, i go download the nvidia drivers, and since then the rig bsods in middle of loading XP. it boots fine if i force SAFE MODE. granted im not sure of how to resolve the issue in this case,. the bsod kicks off too fast to read the code. any ideas how i can further diagnose the issue, tried pulling the GTXbut still got bsods.

my build is as follows
