Specs are in Signature.

 

I am updated to the latest stable Nvidia drives. I was playing Watch Dogs for 2 hours, and it then crashed. It's perfect, just 2 hours and then crash to desktop.

 

Any idea (besides Watch Dogs just being horribly built for PC) that would cause this to happen? Temps seem to be fine on the card and system.

 

Anyone else get this?

I came here looking for a Youtube video of dogs crashing a car.

 

Is there a particular part in the game that's making it crash or is it just after 2 hours each time? I doubt it's your card though.

Nope, its random, 2 hours or so......thats why I am asking here to see if anyone else has the issue.

Probably just the game

So...just start the game and leave it there, don't do nothing so if can passes the 2h+ mark. If it does then it's a part of the game that it's causing it (some texture or object).

I had the game crash more recently than I'm used to, so perhaps they did something in the patch.

 

But I haven't played much recently, so I can't say if it did before the patch.

Looks like the latest Nvidia drivers I have installed are the cause.

I don't get how they release "stable" drivers and they aren't. Geez
