  • Crashes at various times...

    Hi guys,

    Wondering if anyone has any tips to get away from this constant crashing... It happens:
    • When games are "ready" and the accept dialog comes up
    • When I join a game, loading the character selection
    • When watching live games (typically on joining)
    • When doing multiple things (aka entering settings menu mid-game)
    • At other spontanious moments

    It *sounds* very much like a performance issue, but my machine spec is pretty good:
    • AMD FX8350 8 cores at 4.2GHz
    • EVGA GTX 770 OC
    • 24GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM
    • M5A97 Mobo
    • Some high end 850W PSU
    • Cheapo PCI firewire card
    • 2x 160GB Intel SSD
    • 1x 1TB WD blue
    • 3x random other HDDs, 1TB, 500GB, 300GB server grade Seagate models

    All my graphics settings are on defaults, I could lower them but on Windows I was running highest settings with massive success. I know OGL isn't as "good" as DX, but this is a bit extreme...

    Any hints welcome, thanks!
