Nothing I'm doing; some of the BSOD's have occurred in the middle of the night, while I was asleep (and my displays powered off). When I've been present, I'm usually moving the mouse pointer across a set of static windows when the BSOD occurs.
I'm not even scratching the surface of the GPU capabilities. Most of the BSODs occur when the display is not even changing. I don't play games, and rarely even watch videos. I read webpages, do email, follow newsgroups/forums, write small programs. Apart from having the dual displays (with one rotated 90 degrees) the most primitive adapter would be sufficient for me.
One thing I have noticed is that the mouse cursor sometimes gets corrupted just before the BSOD occurs. The corruption happens only on the primary display, and the tip of the pointer is replicated in a vertical bar.
