So my GeForce 8800GT has been the root cause of my system's ridiculous crashes and hang ups for the past few months. As I was ready to buy a new video card, I decided to try one more thing in a last ditch attempt: underclock my "superclocked" 8800GT down to stock 8800GT speeds.

I've had my computer on, running demanding 3D games for the past week after doing this and I've yet to have a crash.

So yeah...I'm not buying anything pre-overclocked again. nVidia specs things at certain speeds for a reason...
