Sorry not a whole lotta help but I think you're right - it could be be the monitors but because there are two of them it is highly unlikely. You can use a utility such as furmark to stress and see if you are right (but furmark is not absolutely definitive).

Were you having this issue before you installed the most recent drivers?
