You have a nice system. Which video drivers are you using and is anything running in the background besides the usual Windows processes/services? (iTunes, browser, taskbar tray items) You might want to check Start, Run, msconfig -> Startup just to kill off anything that you don't need to have running. I do understand the difference between system memory (RAM) and video memory. But the less "stuff" in the mix the better when trying to identify a problem like this, so the less extraneous stuff running, the better. Of course, that's true of any time you are gaming.

I suspect this may be a video driver issue. If you aren't already running the latest, you might want to upgrade to the latest driver and see if it helps. You seem technically savvy, so please don't feel insulted at my questions. I'm only trying to help.

Also, you can run DxDiag from Start, Run to see more info about your setup, HW and drivers, and to see if the drivers are WHQL certified or not.
