Crysis 2 Crashes

Hey guys. I just installed Crysis 2 on my brand new build (see below), with the DX11 patch, high res texture pack, and the 1.9 patch. I'm running a GTX 570 with current drivers (280.26).

Crysis 2 loads fine, but after a few minutes of gameplay it locks up - the screen goes black, the audio continues to play, and I have to Ctr-Alt-Del to get into Task Manager and force it to quit.

I'm desperate to figure out what's going on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
