Hi Dmoe33,

 

Is it every game or just this. Try playing another 3d graphics intensive game and see if it crashes.

 

It could be a few factors for:

1. Bad Driver Upgrade

2. Conflict between drivers, program, OS

3. GFX card going to heaven

4. Dust between contacts of gfx and mobo

 

First thing to try is to always uninstall your gfx drivers, remove all traces of it and then re-install from scatch and see how.

Nvidia driver updates are epicly known for screwing up their driver updates. AMD once in a while does happen.

 

I once had my gfx card crash in any mild graphic intensive application for a  week. Until I got so desperate that I took out my gfx card out and cleaned the contacts (that did not look dirty), as a hail Mary. Like a miracle, suddenly all my crashes stopped. I felt stupid that just a bit of dust that I cannot see killed my PC.
