Shame, but what can you do.
I had the same intermittent gaming problems with certain Nvidia cards over the years (see FX 5900 and 9800 GTX+). The HD 4870 and 5870 have been virtually problem free for all the games I've played, which extends all the way back to 2001.
I guess it's luck of the draw when it's all said and done.
EDIT: BTW, I know Rollo responded to this post. I can't see his posts.
