Driver has stopped responding. When I play games it randomly resets!

Ok, so this has gotten really annoying. I'll lay it down nice and neat.

New computer built in January.
I5-2500k OCed to 4.2
Asus P8Z68 V-Pro motherboard
G Skills 8gig RAM

-Asus Monitor that uses HDMI cord.
-Had 2 6950's crossfire. Worked fine.
-Sold them both. Ran the computer, hooked up to my tv for a bit, used the CPU graphics.
-Whenever I played Crusader Kings 2 it would randomly black out, then return a couple seconds later.
-I thought it would be fixed as soon as I got my new graphics card which I was waiting for.
-Finally got the 680 4gb ftw (planning on getting 2 more monitors).
-Whenever I play anything, it randomly says driver has stopped responding and has recovered. It will happen almost in fixed intervals.
-In Skyrim (heavily modded) it will happen once every hour.
-Playing Black Mesa Source, it happens every 15-10 minutes.
-It does the same thing, blacks out, and comes back after 2-5 seconds, but now it also flickers. Checked GPU temperatures, everything is stable. Ran benchmarks on GPU like furmark, everything is stable.
-Switched from 301.42 driver to the beta 306 one as well, and uninstalled old ATI drivers.

What should I do?

I don't think its a power issue. the two 6950's definitely consumed more power than the 680, but worked fine.

Well, problems like this are usually really hard to solve. It happens for alot of reasons. Sometimes its a bad install of Windows, bad drivers, bad memory, bad registries.

Its a common problem with not alot of solutions except maybe re-installing Windows or running memtest.
