___________Error Event ID 106___________

I purchased 2 BFG 6800 Ultras PCI-E graphics cards and I am experiencing a problem! I have spent $1200 on the two cards and would really like to know what is causing this error.

The error message reads:
Event ID:
Silent Running: Stress test transition: L0 -> L0
Data in Bytes:

Every time I run the Counter Strike Source Video Stress Test I receive that error message. On top of that during the video stress test strange things happen. Where there should be various pictures there exists 3D text which spells out, “ERROR” in red.

I have done everything I can think of. I upgraded Platform & GPU drivers, I reverted drivers, turned on/off SLI, re-slotted the cards, reformatted my hard drive, upgraded my power supply from 500 watts to 600 watts, EVERYTHING!

Oh, and I never overclock, so that's not the problem.

System Specs:
Windows XP Pro SP2
DirectX 9.0c
Nvidia GPU driver: 71.84_win2kxp_english
Nvidia Nforce4 Platform drivers: nForce_6.53_WinXP2K_english
AMD 64 3200+ 2000Mhz FSB 512MB L2 Cache

Dual BFG 6800 Ultras PCI-E graphics cards
Asus A8N-Deluxe SLI Motherboard

Thanks Guys!
