Default 8800GTS lockup/stability issues

Hey, I just got an 8800GTS as a replacement from BFG tech when I sent in my old card that died on me, and Linux is randomly flickering and crashing on me.

When the computer crashes, I can ssh into it, but cannot shutdown or kill any processes. X takes up 100% of the CPU time.
