If you installed the certified ATI drivers previously, then it's unlikely that the ATI drivers are the problem (unlikely - NOT impossible).

OK, want to start by saying you guys are awesome! The help I received here is second to none.
I proceeded as instructed. Ran Driver Cleaner per the instructions, re-installed the latest ATI drivers from a fresh d-load, the problem was still there. System encounterd a BSOD 000008E crash inside 1 hour. Looked at the minidump and it was the same ATI3duag.dll bad instruction showing. I thought maybe I had not done something right so I went through the process again. Only this time, I hit clean a second time while running DC. Sure enough, it found more driver trash to be deleted.
I had d-loaded the Omega drivers and made the decision to install them this time as I had no luck at all with the ATI drivers. Best decision I ever made concerning this PC. I also deleted and re-installed some files Sony recommends to ensure the EQ program is not corrupt.
The system is running great, no crashes at all to date. I let the game run for 24 hours straight, no crashes. It seems I will no longer be using ATI drivers in my system. The graphics look better than ever on standard settings with the Omega drivers. I'm not an overclock guy, never wanted to risk a burn up of the vid card. There is much greater control with the Omega drivers and tools as well. These drivers ROCK! If Omega ever goes away I can guarantee so will the ATI card in my system. I would have a hard time buying another ATI product in the future absed on this experience.
Thanks again for all the help,

Glad to hear that this has worked for you!
ATI lost me long ago (issues with a TVWonder card), so I was unaware of these driver issues.
I learn something new here every day!
