    Try furmark to stress test your gpu.THis way you find out the cause.
  2. i ran a stability test for an hr and it was good...temp at 70 C and it didnt freeze/crash at all...now im running the windows memory diagnostic test and all..and 30 mins have passed im still stucked at 15% complete 1 of 2..u think i hav a bad ram?
  3. Let it run for longer, RAM tests can be a while. You can try to run the system with only one stick (if you have several).
  4. i simply clean Windows registry and updated drivers and now Bulletstorm is running smoothly..
