    It might be the ASUS software. Having SmartDoctor and GamerOSD installed in my computer (when I had my 440) constantly crashed games. Try uninstalling it, maybe Afterburner will work?

    does it still crash with accelleration off in PS? you might also wanna add it to the DEP exceptions as well, as it still has legacy code that newer OSes still have trouble with, as it registers as malicious and triggers DEP. I have to disable DEP for PS as a result.

    I'll try Afterburner to be fair

    I have grey horizontal lines :(
    And if I'm playing music it just makes a BZZZZZZ (static) noise

    Same problem here, ps crash with fault module from ati driver, so it is something wrong between ati driver and ps6, after last update of ps6 (13.0.1.1), when ps6 it is using the vga , it is not crashing so frequently(I can disable use of vga but I miss a lot of bonus the ps6 it have,ex:panning,etc..)...

    Are you also using the HDMI audio from the card?
