it could just be that Far cry 3 is stressing the card more than the other games which does happen with newer games and the overclock is unstable under the load.

i would try the game at stock clocks and come back if it still does not work.

no the most likey cause is your gpu overclock, if it was your ram your computer would crash with everything memory intensive.

i also noticed on other threads people having problems with overclocks and far cry 3 it seems like it is a common problem.

remove the overclock, if it solves the problem then there's your answer. its not unusual for an overclock to be stable in some games and not in others as they use different features of the card and put different loads on the gpu.
