    Default Xfx 5970

    need some help guys.
    I just finished setting up my new rig. My rig is running fine except for some issues with my 5970. Occasionally when I'm not using highly intensive 3D applications like surfing the web, my pc crashes. I get an error saying 'Display Drivers have failed' or something to that effect. When i'm playing games or using 3D applications, however, it runs perfectly fine. I've tested out SC2 and COD MW2 for hours and no problems at all. Im using Catalyst 10.8 on Windows 7 x64
    Has anyone had this problem before and can anyone possibly help me find a solution? Is this a hardware problem or a driver related one? Should I consider replacing the card with another 5970? I haven't done any OC and plan on doing so after i get everything stabilized.

    My Specs:
    CPU: Intel i7 920 D0 (stock setting)
    MOBO: Gigabyte ga-x58a-ud7 (rev.1 / f7 bios)
    GPU: XFX 5970 (stock setting)
    RAM: Kingston HyperX KHX2000C9D3T1K3 (6 x 2gb = 12gb) 2000Mhz C9
    PSU: Corsair 1000hx
    HDD 1: WD 150gb Velociraptor
    HDD 2: Samsung 1TB Spinpoint F3

    LIQUIDCOOLING:
    PUMP: Laing DDC 3.25 18w + XSPC ResTop
    CPU BLOCK: Swiftech Apogee XT
    VGA BLOCK: DangerDen DD-5970
    RAD: Swiftech MCR 320 QP-Res on Push/Pull (6 fans total @ 1300rpm)
    TUBING: PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue Tubing - 3/8in. ID x 5/8in. OD
    NOTE: i'm cooling my cpu + chipset + graphics card

    no specific time. but i find that it only happens when im not using 3d applications. it's annoying since most of the time im surfing the web when it occurs. I also find that when it happens, it occurs more frequently after the restart.
