I hate this... it's so much easier when stuff burns!! (but I'm broke now so I hope it won't)
Also... I game at 2560x1440, it's a bit too much for the card but I don't think that would be a reason for it to be crashing right?

For checking the PSU you would need a accurate multimeter and test to see if the voltage drops when the system is under load and to see if the voltage is within specs. Also if you know some one that has an oscilloscope you can check the AC ripple current to see if its still within specs.

For troubleshooting try rolling back to an older driver version. If you don't remember which one was stable then try 295.73 and test using the GTX 570.
Note that you are not alone, there are a lot of people that are experiencing this problem it's just that the reasons why the TDRs happen vary a lot.
nvidia did not recognize it as being their issue, maybe the reference design works fine and it could be a problem caused by their partners. Personally i'd advise anyone to steer away from nvidia products for a generation or two until they fix their problems but it could also be a bias on my part, maybe the percentage of cards that are defective is not that big, it just seems big because nvidia sold more of them than AMD.
