That's certainly out of the norm, at least from my experience (with a
couple of boxes). Before I the motherboard died, I was running an athlon
machine with a Geforce2 MX 24/7 for 2 years. I was rebooting every 2-3
months (usually for kernel or hardware upgrades), but iirc, never had X
or the box crash on me.
Perhaps it's something funky about your work machine? Have you tried the
non-proprietary drivers? (If you can)

Unfortunately, this definitely does seem to be true.
My box at work has the binary Nvidia drivers and about once a fortnight
or so, X dies, restarts and provides me with GDM login screen. For someone
who keeps half a dozen windows open with what I'm working on, this is
a royal PITA.
