I recently have been having issues with my video cutting out on my during videogames. My monitors would go into sleep mode randomly. Sometimes it happens right away once I enter a match, and sometimes I can go for hours and have it not happen. This happened with my on a BFG GTX 280 oc and I thought it was the videocard. Having replaced it with a more expensive EVGA gtx 570 that I payed around 350$ for I thought the issue would be resolved. I was wrong. I usually play video games like World of warcraft, League of legends, and bloodline champions, and it always seems to happen more quickly if I am playing in fullscreen, compared to a window such as 1240X1040. Even more so I have left world of warcraft open, but minimized in the background while I browse the internet, and my video will cut out on me.

It is EXTREMLY frustrating. I have contacted the game manufacturers and I can find no one else that has this issue.

It would be wonderful if I could get this solved. I have posted on other forums but no one ever has an answer.
