i installed 9800pro about 1 month ago, i also installed 350WPSU
i have a fan blowing right into it and another fan to blow air out of the desktop
i also just installed the latest catalyst (the right way)

just recently when i play nfs most wanted (video mid-settings) after playing around 10-min the video will just go black, the sound and buttons still works, but i can't exit the black screen anymore and i have to restart my pc

before i can play the game for over 2-hrs w/no problem

is there any tools i can use to find out if there's something wrong w/my vid card so i can still exchange it

I'm not sure if it has anything to do with your problem, but depending what else you have hooked up a 350W could be borderline. Did the problem start after the new Catalyst driver install?

It sounds like a driver problem actually. My ATI would do that too and when I rebooted it told me it had recovered from a serious error which ended up being the ATi drivers. Try rolling back a version or two and let us know how it goes.
