The Matrox isn't exactly a good gaming card, but it could also be your system becoming unstable.

Are your case/cpu temps Okay? Heat is the number one reason for halts/lockups when overclocking. The second most common offender is drivers, in this case video drivers, which matrox will have to supply for you (I haven't checked their site for updates in some time).
