Default Crashes in games

I'm having major stability problems whenever I game.

Intel i7 950 with Noctua D14 heatsink
Asus Cu II ATI 6950 2GB
6GB of OCZ RAM

Windows 7 64 bit SP1, all latest updates. ATI 13.4 drivers

On the BSOD it said something like ATIKMPAG.SYS. Is the GPU on it's way out :-( Stock GPU speeds.


I've done a fresh install a couple of times, just now I haven't done any updates to see if one of those has made the system worst. It make no difference, it still crashed.

Mainly playing World of Tanks, but it crashes in other games too.

OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 2057

BCP2: FFFFF880030A2CF0
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: 0000000000000002
OS Version: 6_1_7601

Product: 256_1

There are many applications to do this, but you could use dumpchk [support.microsoft.com].

Been doing a little reading up. One appeared to be a simple solution. Which slot is the card in? Blue or gray?

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0)

That board.

Bah thought it was stable, no. How can I know it's a GPU problem not a OS/videocard problem? If I send it back to ASUS and they test it and it is ok.

I don't have another ATI high end videocard but I do have a old 8800GT, and a couple of 4350 and 5350
