We need some more information:

- How long have you had these cards running in these two machines?

- Have you always had problems with these machines?

- Are you sure it is the card(s) at fault? Maybe it is something else like your power supply, CPU, memory, etc? Basically have you narrowed down the possible causes to definitely be isolated to the video card?

- What are your system specs? CPU, kind of cooling, reported temperatures, etc

problem solved, by lowering the hardware acceleration just a tad this has solved the crashing without any noticeable loss of performance.I believe the 5700 is nvidia's friday card, but hay every one can make a lemon sometime

Glad you're up and running. I see lots of 5700 problems posted,but my 5700 Ultra was one of the smoothest cards I've owned. NV36 was in a great price/performance spot, and has been my favorite GPU for some odd reason.
