For the last couple of months I have been crashing randomly when I'm playing Burning Crusade Classic WoW. Usually my screen freezes for about a second or two, both monitors, then afterwards the game hangs for 30-50 seconds while I can still do stuff on my second monitor but the game is frozen, then I get a notification from AMD radeon software saying that the driver has crashed.

Here's the kicker: I have put my R9 290 Card in my friend's PC for weeks, and never once experienced a similar crash. I also put my friend's GTX 760 in my PC, in the same PCI-E slot, and also never experienced a single similar crash ever. I have wiped all my drivers and reinstalled them cleanly, but the crashes persist.

What on earth could be causing this?
