Ok, last week i had problem with this card which crash on most game except RTS game. I have tried almost every fix on how to get rid of "Display Driver Stop responding and have recovered".

Then yesterday i underclocked (did i said it right) my GPU clock from 900mhz to 850 mhz. And the problems disappeared YAAYYYY... 

it's not such a big deal cause i didn't notice a drop in performance, but of course it will hamper any option for me to OC my card.

Now my question is, what causing this ? 

Any responds will be appreciated, thanks.

First let me say, your English is good. However...before you can expect any kind of sane guess as to what your issue might be caused will have to read FAQ (at the top of the page) and comply with the suggestions there in..and all. If that is impossible, read the "Read This Before Posting" (which Ruby thought was sufficient).
