That's how we can tell it's not a simple GPU issue, because other stuff freezes up -- not just the vid signal. I'll be typing an email, and suddenly it quits in mid-sentence. About 45 seconds later, just about the time I'm ready to put my shoe through the monitor, it goes black.

AMD is sending me an RMA, we'll see how that goes. They'll probably "test" my processor, not be able to duplicate my problem, and send it back as-is. Why can't these manufacturers all be like L.L. Bean, and just swap your component out with a new one, to be safe?
