Exclamation GF 260 896mb problems with new games!

Alright so I was in starcraft 2 beta and was suddenly getting game freezing, it took me a while to realize my "video driver" "stoped responded" (located by a yellow exclamation mark in the task bar) It only happened while playing SC2 so I thought it was a SC2 problem. But now I bought Blurr and get the same issue of game freezing then it coming back after about 10-20 seconds (with the exclamation mark in the taskbar) and only now realize I have a "video hardware" problem in my windows "problems and solutions" this is what is says the problem is. During SC2 I had tried about 6 different drivers all had the same issue. What else can I do to fix this besides a new video card?! it's only like 6 months old :/

looks like it's gone bad... might have to RMA.

you could try underclocking the card. that puts less stress on the video card. therefore might run stable.
but you lose performance.

all Evga cards comes with at least 2 year warranty. (except refurbs)

but warranty only applies to the original purchaser, if you bought the card 2nd hand... I guess you are SOL
