underclock your gpu by little amount say 15mhz and run the game....
if it crashes again further lower the clock frequencies again by 15 mhz each.....(memory and core).....
you would achieve stability at some point.....
i have tested this method with cheap cards like hd5450 and beasts like hd7970 and gtx680 ....
so believe me...this method works....
nest of luck....
dont confuse OVERCLOCKING snd UNDERCLOCKING.....!!!!!!!!!
i said UNDERCLOCK your gpu ...
u can use software such as msi afternurner....

Yes I bought it. I updated PunkBuster and turned off SSD Discovery and so far the game has not crashed. Hopefully that fixed it.
