Graphics Card Keeps crashing in GW2 and won't Stabalize!crash radeon hd 6970 glitches overclocking? underclocking? stabalizing

Whenever I start GW2, i see gliching in the background, almost like the games being cut with scissors and then they get replaced right away. after a approx. 15 seconds, the game crashes stating that the graphics card has recovered from a crash. Every so often when this happens, GW2 returns with a black screen and a popup on my desktop for GW2 states that there is was a severe graphics error and is forced to close.
for anyone who is curious as to my computer specs, here you are:
HD radeon 6970 graphics card
Thermal Take 1000watt PSU
hex core CPU (AMD Phenom x6 Thuban)
Liquid cooling CPU heat-sink
Cooler Master HAF 930 Tower
and its all for a Crosshair IV Formula MoBo
If anyone wants to know anything more, lemme know and any help anyone can offer me will be MUCH appreciated!!!!

Try to repair GW2 installation. Add the -repair parameter to the shortcuts target. (howto here: http://wiki.guildwar...ki/Command_line)
Should look like this (although path to Gw2.exe may differ):
Target: "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars 2\Gw2.exe" -repair
Have you tried purging/reinstalling GPU driver? (of no: try it )
Any OCs? Disable them if so.
If all else fails:
Download HWMonitor, run it, make sure all fields are well visible, take a screenshot of the window and post the window here. (gives us info on temperatures and lots of other useful info)
Download GPU-Z, run it, take a screenshot of the window and post here. (gives us even more detailed info on your GPU)

Also, make sure you don't have any incorrect settings in the BIOS. The easiest way to do that would be to reset the BIOS (check the motherboard manual). Remove any overclocks on the CPU and/or GPU.
Your power supply - although massive overkill - should be OK, but it could be going flaky, or you could have a rail overloaded. Try replacing it with a loner - 550watts is enough.
And, as usual, clean the dust out of the rig and make sure all fans are working.

after all that, i used the repair feature to no avail, also, my OS and Bios are both at basic, out-of-the-box settings, no OC or any tweaking. my computer was working like a crazy machine until i put GW2 on it. The simple fact that this game apparently is crashing my GPU is kinda scary considering how much time, effort and money into it.
so if you wonderful people can somehow help me figure out the problem, i would be in so much debt to you cuz I haven't been able to fix it, and i hate that i can't.
Till next time.
the GPU-Z pic didn't upload, here ya go
it would appear as though i am not able to upload the GPU-Z pic... i can however tell you anything you need to in regards to the info your are needing

Also, what about other games? Same thing or just GW2?

any other game i run is perfect, no problems at all, no crashing and i run at max settings for them, (Skyrim, Diablo 3, NevroVision) only game that this happens for is GW2.
Noticed a tab in the GPU-Z, heres screenshot for that section as well
