Well ok, here goes.  I recently did a post about X quiting out with a
sig11 a lot.  Its usually about once or twice a week but the other day
it did it like 3 times in a row.  The only responce I got was that it
could be bad ram.  So I ran memtest on the machine.  Nothin, I have
registered ECC ram (required for my board) I've pulled the sound card,
no effect.  I havent had a spontaneous reboot since I got the new
video card.  Which gives me the same effect weather I use the
comercial nvidia drivers or the open source nv drivers.  I dont seem
to have the same problem in windows, but I run windows about as much
as I run in the street.  The only thing I've come up with is that its
either the power supply, or I need to get some sort of line
conditioner for the plug its pluged into.  I have a beautiful surge
protector, but I guess that wouldnt stop drops in the power level. 
Thanks for all your help.
