Firstly the GPU is unlikely to be the culprit if he's rendering, he hasn't specifically mentioned what render suite(s) he's using, but they all crash, and most render suites won't use the GPU for rendering, unless specifically set to it and most can't even then.
HE probably hit on the problem in his first post. bad memory. Rendering especially high poly rendering uses a LOT of memory, in fact it's probably the first time he's ever been close to using all of his computers memory.
DO you have 1 4GB stick or 2 2GB sticks ? if it's 2 sticks, remove one at a time and check.
also what resolution are you rendering the output at ?
My main renderer with which I work with is Keyshot 2, but Vray, Indigo and others failed too. I have 2 sticks of 2GB of RAM. But how does removing one stick at a time help me? Do you think one of them could be corrupt or something?

If you have not moved the sliders for the OC, then it is a factory OCd card from ASUS, if you have moved the sliders, then it is a Custom OC by you
Put the sliders to where ever they were when you got the card, or disable the overdrive check box and hit apply

GPUz - GPU temps
CPU-z or coretemp - CPU temps
I have tried rendering with various clock settings and it's still the same, although maybe I didn't try rendering with stock clock speeds.
