Hi

Damn that is bad but what you can do is check if your hardrive is clutered (A clutered hardrive has often crashes plus vry long start ups), or your computer might be over heating, does your computer have a good cooling system and/or clear ways for heat/air to escape (often th cause of crashes during games) or its simply you graphics card cannot handle the games that you play.

hope it helps! :sol:
 
Your hard drive is not a part of this problem.
When you installed the video card, did you wipe out any old video drivers first? Completely wipe out all video drivers, then re-install.
I would also suspect memory, but you say you ran memtest on your RAM.
Even if it is running at factory clocks, turn down the clocks on your graphics card, using a utility like Afterburner, and see if it becomes stable. If it does, RMA it with Gigabyte for not being able to run at their factory clocks.

I've re-install windows, but no luck. Still crash. i've tried disable the aero, change adaptive to Prefer maximum power in nvidia control panel, add Dword in regedit. i installed intel hd with my 660 ti. is there a problem with that ?

Maybe it just dosn't fit.

I don't mean that its to big i mean that it has to much of a wattage requirment for the psu to handle. To propurly check you will want to add the wattage requirment of the graphics card and the cpu considering there the biggest juice suckers in your computer and then add 100-150 more watts for everything else and if you still have more watts to use than tahs not it. :sol:
