Display adapter has stopped working and has recovered error - GTX 670x

I just got a prebuilt computer from ibuypower that uses the GTX 670X and I keep randomly getting an error where my screen turns black and a message pops up saying "displayed adapter has stopped responding and has recovered".

Also in games like Diablo 3, I'll alt tab and back in only to have blue square boxes going diagonally across my screen and Skyrim crashing when I alt tab.

I don't know what could be causing this...

I tried updating the driver.

No luck.

How long have you had this issue? Have you overclocked the card? Try downclocking.

A couple of possibilities for display adapting crashing.
1) Drivers
2) Heat
3) A possible bad card. From some research, people have RMA the card. Some cards crash a couple times.

Well the drivers are updated and the card is EVGA Overclocked.

I just got the computer yesterday.

could it be one of the ones that needed recalling?

I checked the model and it's a 2675, the recalled ones being 2672.

I don't even know what's wrong with it.

I try to go on skype and after about 5 minutes, my entire computer freezes up since the graphics driver shuts down.

And whenever I try to watch live streams, the display adapter repeatedly crashes.

I really don't know what's causing it.
