My 5870 started to die on me so I replaced it with a MSI 660 Ti last week. Well come to find out the game I spend most of my time on these days has severe issues with all 600 series cards. After reading your reviews to help me pick a card (huge fan of the latency benchmark you all do), I figure someone here might be able to point me in the right direction to get this fixed. So here is what has been happening:
1. Every 15-20 mins a small lockup in video and audio.
2. Sometimes during these lockups the screen will completely go black and either my machine will hardlock or the game will come back to 15fps and a driver recovery popup.
3. On exit, the game will RSOD. http://i.imgur.com/9c2uc.jpg
This is happening to everyone with a 600 series card.

A user on the g1 forum said eVGA put out a firmware update for their 670s and it fixed all his issues. However, my card is an MSI 660 Ti so that doesn't really help me . Any ideas on how to get this fixed or should I just send it back to newegg and go with the ATI equivalent?
