It's either a bad card or it is overheating. Try cooling it down more and see if the problem stops. You could also try underclocking it. If it still has warranty then just return it.

Had the exact same thing with an old GF3. Was told by NV that it had a bust memory controller. Think its fair to say, its either extreme overheating, or its knackered!

if it happens after 10 minutes... sounds like maybe its overheating...
