8800 GTS EVGA Problem

  1. I have recently purchased a new video card, the NVIDIA 8800 GTS by EVGA, for my first computer build. Everything seems to be working perfectly except for one minor but also critical issue with the card. In any game, Hitman Blood Money or M&M Dark Messiah for example, the game will run for about 5 seconds upon loading a level then it will completely freeze and will eventually either restart my computer or give me the blue screen of death. I have updated the BIOS on my mobo and downloaded the INF file for it as well. I have also tried both the EVGA drivers and NVIDIA drivers on my card as well as reinstalling the latest Direct X. Any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Could be two things:

    1. Check the CPU and video card's temperature.
    2. Download and run Memtest 86, and let it run for at least 7-8 passes (takes some time)
