Default 8600 GTS acting up.

I think that's the source of my problem.

My Warcraft 3 keeps freezing unexpectedly on me. I've updated my drivers, checked the temperatures, and it's running on low settings.

No other game I have does this. I don't want to hear "but 8600 sux", it's given me 300 FPS in Half Life 2 at max settings without going over 33c, so..

I'm not sure if the processor is tied into this somehow, but if it matters, I'm using an AMD 64 X2 5200+.
