I switched out my 570 with my 460 and I never ran into the Timeout Detection and Recovery problem at all playing WoW or a in stress test. I then switched back to my 570, WoW again did the TDR, then ran for a good 30 minutes and again TDR.
I ran my 570 on a stress test with 8xAA for well over 30 minutes, my GPU ran at 98+% the whole time, never got above 48C that I saw. Not one TDR.
Earlier today I did manage to TDR my 570 in a benchmark while trying to OC it (seems I can't get it to OC above 850/1700/2000 @1.063V, yet I saw a website that tested it get one to 1006/2012/1148, not sure of voltage, on air. How is that even possible Link to OC
) I like the TDR when I'm trying to OC, helps save me from hard rebooting all the time. But annoying in WoW.
Haven't had anymore problems with any other games, The Witcher 2 has ran fine since the other TDR (think I had it OC then, a wee to much), Skyrim, AoC, EQ2, and so on. No problems, but WoW gives me hell.
Updated my audio with some Creative program that ASUS had on website.
I've seen that I can do this, but not sure how much it would help.
How to Disable TDR:
1) open your vista registry editor (Just type regedit to show your registry)
2) go to the key : HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\
3) highlight it then right click on this key
4) Add DWORD TdrDelay
5) Set value of TdrDelay to "0"
This will stop that msg from displaying. I also have a Nvidia GTX 570 and this fixed that problem.

Would this help any?
I can RMA the card, but I don't really believe it is the card as it seems WoW is the only program I run into this problem (minus OCing and stressing while OC).
