So about a year ago I built my brother a computer and we recently upgraded his graphics to a 6870. Here are the PC specs specifically.
Athlon II x3 455 Asus AM3 M4A87 TD Evo 4gb 2x2gb G.skill RAM Samsung spinpoint f3 500gb Antec 300 Illusion case(3 120mm LED and 1 140mm LED Fan) Ultra LSP 550w PSU HP Cd/Dvd rw drive XFX HD 6870
He has had the card for under 24 hours now and a couple minutes ago he had two WoW crashes due to full blow artifacting. Im wondering if this could be as simple as a driver issue or if the PSU is not strong enough for the card.

Can he try another game?
Also what are the temps for the card like under load?
60-62C at load, hes been playing WoW now for about 2-3 hours since it happened with no problems but it still has me a little nervous. He's also been playing BF3 60-62c at load earlier today and hasnt had problems with that yet. Thanks for the quick reply.
