hi all. ever since i fitted my computer with a second GTX680, i've been getting consistant crashing with the same error message. this happens once or twice a day.

it doesnt have to be when i'm doing anything graphically intensive which leads me to think it isn't a card fault, but what do i know. what happens when it crashes is audio will glitch for a brief second, along with the screen freezing, screen goes black, monitor displays no signal, and then the computer restarts.

i have been told by someone on a different forum to install older drivers for the card but to no avail. i have recently updated the drivers to the latest ones, but i'm still getting this issue. i have uninstalled all aspects of AVG, and i have never owned kaspersky. i hear these are problems for other people with my issue.

my computer specs: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3820 CPU @ 3.60GHz

Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

Video Card #2 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

RAM 12 GB

Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit intel core i7 3820 @ 3.60ghz

this is really beginning to drive me mad. i also really don't want to have to buy a new graphics card because that's money i dont have right now so if someobody can find a fix for this i'd really really appreciate it.
