i never left my computer idle unless i use torrent or whatever... it just went black (the monitor shows as no connection or off) and frozen that you cant do something... just have to shut down then reboot the computer...

anyway bad news.. it only lasts good for 2 days then failed like crazy... it also failed a stress test by occt... it drove me crazy ;\

I wouldn't blame amd/ati for this one. I have a very had time believing that 2 cards died at once. My guess is motherboard, power supply, or you had a major power issue that fried the cards (power surge or bad psu).
