    I recently purchased a new computer Everything was working fine until today when I loaded up
    crysis 64 bit. The game will launch but when i try to shoot my weapon
    it freezes, I can still hear the audio though. The exact same thing
    happens in grand theft auto 4, the game will load, and I can play it
    but it freeze when I try to shoot a weapon, and I can still hear
    audio. Half life 2 plays fine, those are the only games I have so I
    cant provide a more detailed error list. I am running the latest
    nvidia drivers as of today. I am not doing any overclocking what so
    ever. Using gpu-z the cards temps are around 54 Celsius when it crashes.

    my set up:

    ausus p8 p67 deluxe
    intel i7 2600k (stock settings) with good temps going no higher than
    50 C on full load
    corsair H70 cooler
    corsair dominator gt 1866 8GB
    corsair ax 850W powersupply
    Palit GTX 580 (stock settings)

    advice please

    in crysis i had the exact same problem.. everytime i tryed to shoot my pc was freezing all the way for like 4/5 seconds "not crashing".
    try to change driver or..
    bring down the crysis console.
    with the keyboard button under ESC.
    i dont remember the name
    type
    con_restricted 0

    then after that put

    sys_physics_cpu command.
    there are many settings

    0 is by default for single/dual core cpu and sometimes can cause this problem

    try 1/2/3 or 4
    and see if any of these still causes you "freezes"
    if so try to change drivers.. crysis is a bad girl. whining for everything :p

    thanks for the advice but im RMA ing the card, i dont wanna have to fiddle around with stupid settings, and i dont wanna play the 32 bit version when i just spent thousands of dollars on a new 64 beast!

    also forgetting crysis, its happening in gta 4 aswell, in exactly the same way. i dont wanna have to tone thing down and change some console settings on every game i play.

    Sounds like ram issue to me too. No way you are running at 1866mhz on stock settings.
