At this point you might as well just RMA the 6870.A 700watt PSU is more than enough to run a Dual core and a 6870.
Found out the problem. built this computer a year ago, Had a friend install what he said was a legit version of Window's 7 Enterprise on the thing for me. Come to find out, it wasn't. After purchasing Win 7 Ultimate x64 and installing it, the issue has went away and the computer runs flawless now. Moral of story, make sure your version of windows is authentic. Thanks for all of your suggestions!
