Hello all as the title states no other forums for legacy cards

My system is a Asus P6T deluxe V2 Board, I7 9.20, 12GB Gskill ram

crossfired 4890's, Soundblaster audio card, 

1000 Watt Corsair, 

Problem stated about a month ago when I swithed out a older DVD burner 

for a SATA, ( I had a few old burned DVD which could not be read,)

the new DVD read most but not all, One in particicular I just let it read for a while 

with limited sucess,

Couple of days later I had a reboot or a black screen, cannot remember which.

overtime  occcured, more and more frequently, 

so I umplugged the burner, no difference

reinstalled Win7 64, still reboots or black screens

checked memory with memtest, passed

removed win7 HD, no difference

different Power supply no difference

cleared Cmos, new battery, no difference

attached monitor to other video card , no difference,

the only thing that made a difference was to switch to a Nvidia card

which reboots and black screeens, but no nearly as often as the ATI,

I have given a friend both my ATI cards, and he has no problems at all 

with either.

The reboots and Blackscreens are ramdom, I''m not stressing the machine 

at all when they happen. the last reboot with the ATI cards 

happen after the windows logon on 

My thoughts are it's the Motherboard.

any help would be appreciated.
