see the gpu temps.
This may be a graphics card with problem, but may also be a psu problem, what is your power supply? are you sure it can handle 4870?
i don't even had a chance to monitor the temperature. My psu is 600/650 walt true power..
if you are sure your psu is ok you should change video card, probably the problem is there;
