Graphics card failure?!

Hello,
I recently built a machine with a gtx 660 graphics card. However, after using the machine for extended periods of time, games crash. If you continue to stress the machine after that, it crashes the machine. SpeedFan says my GPU runs at about 30 degrees celsius whil idle, and 50 at max load. Is this enough to cause a crash, or did I not install the card correctly? Is there an obvious solution I am missing?

    Those are perfectly fine temps, especially for a graphics card. Try running a RAM test and see if that could be your problem. Most crashes occur because of a bad stick. Heres a link to download a memory test program.
