Default Issues with compy

Atm it seems like a graphics card issue, but basically I'm having weird issues with my computer. Before it was CTD's in WOW and BF3, and I think I narrowed it down to the onboard soundcard. Now that's disabled in bios and have my old Fatal1ty soundcard in there. Seems to be a bit better, but the last couple days, having all sorts of CTD's in BF3, don't know if that's related to the new patch. Also, I'll leave my computer on, go do something for about an hour, come back to it at the password entry screen as if it has been rebooted. And sometimes will not load the sound drivers and/or vid drives, it will have the intel graphics icon in the bottom right bar.

So my question is, does this seem like a graphics card issue, or is this general system instability ie; I need a new mobo?

Check your error logs. A BSOD is probably causing the reboot. You should then be able to see the error on the BSOD and then go from there.

I highly doubt the onboard sound on your mobo would be causing CTD. its very unlikely but always possible none the less. download blue screen view and view the crash log on your computer. BF3 was patched and i know certain people are still expierencing crashes in that game. I would test counter-strike or TF2 something that doesnt crash very often to narrow out if its game or hardware related. If your computer is resetting to the intel graphics on your machine that is a good indication of a video card / driver issue. reinstall / update the drivers of your card or rollback to a previous version and see if that helps.

Burn a Memtest86 CD and let that run, I think it's memory or possibly even the PSU.
