    Default Blah, computer problems. Again.

    Started off with

    E4300
    Abit IP35-E
    4x1gb (2x ballistix 6400, 2x ocz gold 6400)
    7900GTX
    Silverstone ST50EF+
    4x hdd

    Dropped in a visiontek 4850, and then I started getting random blue screens with atikmdag.sys as the problem. Replace the board, then the cpu, then remove some ram, so I'm left with

    E8400
    Asus P5Q Deluxe
    2x1gb OCZ Gold 6400
    4850
    Silverstone ST50EF+
    4x hdd

    Works fine for a while, now I've started getting ntfs.sys bluescreens, random dwm crashes. Run checkdisk, no problems found at all. Ramtest checks out fine, as does Furmark, and OCCT.

    psu multimeters out properly, and kill-a-watts in at under 400w.

    Any ideas?

    Did you completely remove the old Nvidia drivers before installing the new card?

    I've read your thread at [H], IMAO, all logic suggest that you RMA the 4850.
    Your problems started there, correct?
    Throw that 7900GTX back in there and see what happens.

    And look, memtest threw out a bunch of errors.

    I bet this isn't the end of it, either.
