Just made the switch from ATI back to NVIDIA, and while the card is awesome, I'm starting to have problems. Not sure whether it's heat or a bad video card. MSI GTS 8800 OC 640.

Total hang up during games and after rebooting the screen will go plaid after a few minutes just on the desktop. I'm using the latest beta driver as well.

Power Supply is a Antec TruePower 650, so I believe that should be sufficient to power.

Got the same card and I use the official 158.22 drivers with it, working fine for a month now.

I'm still on XP though, haven't gone Vista yet as no games I have require Vista or DX10. Card under load reaches about 65-70C at worst, so there's no overheating here.
