    I think it may have somethign to do with my video card but I am not sure. I have to xfx 8800 gt's running in sli, with an xfx 680i lt mother board. I have had it set up for a bout a week, and the system is crashing more and more as time goes on. Its not even a blue screen per say, just my screen goes black and then it holds in place for a bit then shut down. I think it is creating a log however

    I don't know where to begin??? you say you have 2 video cards running in a SLI set up???
    I wish your board a VGA integrated graphic hook up. then we could at least hook up
    your monitor to the VGA integrated to see if your monitor then worked fine.
    but I doubt it does so you will have to remove both video cards and look to see if there is
    any obvious things like scorch marks on one or the other video cards. after that just install 1 of the cards and see how long your monitor lasts before crashing. check to make sure if the fan on the GPU
    is running correctly. keep and eye on the GPU temp. if it crashes then take out the single
    video card and install the other one in a single set up. see how long this card lasts.
    if we had a VGA hook up we could check the monitor itself but you might have to borough a monitor
    to see if the monitor is the problem. you haven't talked about any other drive problems-so I'm ignoring the PSU.
    Did you check all the cables going into your video cards?
    especially the bridge between the 2 cards for the SLI set up???
