I find that I only get Xid errors (followed by an “eventual” system freeze) if I change the screen resolutions. Also using applications like games that changes the resolution (while going into full screen mode), can or will cause the same Xid error issues too.

Can you please post a report if you see motherboard memory controller issues too please?
You will find an error report about an incorrect kernel version header.
My system was built around the 2.6.16 kernel headers to run Linux-2.6.16-??. 12 months later, I had upgraded my PC from an AMD 3200+ to an Intel Core2 Duo E6600 and got a Geforce-8800-GTX (upgrade from a AGP 5900-Ultra).
I had found explict support for the Core2 Duo and the 680i (650i) chipset with Kernel-2.6.20, and had to upgrade the kernel accordingly. After the kernel upgrade I came across Xids at any moment, so I had upgraded the kernel again to Linux-2.6.21-rc5, and now only get Xids when I change full screen resolutions
EDIT ADD: I've just tryed this:- http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=58498
No log updates posted. But the very same issues happen.
