Angry FX 5200 Random X crashes on debian

I just got an Albatron GeForce FX 5200 EP
128MB video card.

Now after anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, X will crash filling the screens with a "horizontal tear" pattern and the keyboard and mouse don't respond. I can log in on another PC thru the ethernet and see that that the X processes have disappeared. I can't get the keyboard or mouse to work so i have to reboot. The problem happens without twinview too. It seems like a buffer overflow problem.

It's plugged into an Intel 440BX mainboard AGP slot with P-III 500MHz and 384MB ram. I'm running debian with my own compiled 2.4.20 kernel. I've tried with the nvidia AGP support and without it. I set the bios for 128MB agp aperture. The nvidia driver is 1.0-4363. XFree86 is

Video bios revision:
Model: GeForce FX 5200
IRQ: 11
Video BIOS:
Card Type: AGP

The last couple of crashes have happened at the precise moment i clicked on a newsgroup message in mozilla 1.2.1, so the fault seems like a software buffer overflow problem.
