This looks like the gigabyte gv-n570oc-13i that I already have. It replaced an EVGA 570 Superclocked that was doing that "display driver has quit responding" crap then ultimately started artifacting. Unfortunately while this card here stays very cool and looks neat it too is doing the "display driver has quit responding" crap unless I take it down to the default 732 core :(

I also get "display driver has quit responding" with my 560, but it's not overclocked. I'm starting to think it has to do with the current official drivers. Seems like problems started with the last driver update.

Since downclocking the core fixes it, then I seriously doubt it's software related. I honestly think they've really just been pushing the cores of these things for too long because this problem has plagued me for years no matter what card I get, started like back in the 7800 days. I think they just clock them up to X core and test it just a bit and seems good then ship them, but after using it for some time you'll find it's not really 100% stable all the time at that core so you have to downclock it to use it.
