Okay i own an XPS 8300 computer here are the specs
i7 2600
8 gigs of ram
GTX 560 SuperClocked by EVGA
460w PSU
21.5 inch monitor

Skryim Settings:
1920x1080
16x AA
Ultra settings

My problem is whenever situations get intense the game crashes. it doesnt even freeze it closes down. my friend with a 700w PSU and GTX 560 has the same problem so i doughbt its the power supply. There is plenty of fans i belive dont know why its occuring. Any ideas?

Lower the settings to high. My 5770 rated ultra high butthe controls ran slow. I lowered the settings and all was well. Also check your audio settings Skyrim likes 24 bit 44100.

thanks for the suggestion but the GTX 560 is signifacantly more powerful than the 5770 so not sure if that is an issue but i will try

Could also be a driver issue. Update your nVidia drivers.

By the way, the 560 GTX needs a minimum of a 500 watt PSU. You are kind of pushing it there with your 460 watt one. Not going to say it won't work, because it might.

Thats incorrect the GTX 560 needs 450w your thinking of the GTX 560ti. anyway its a dell power supply and my friend has the same problem with a 800w psu so i really dont think its an isssue

Indeed indeed you are correct. My apologies to you. Of course, I was just speculating on that anyway, as I have seen people run GPUs requiring a 500 Watt PSU successfully on a 460W PSU (and sometimes a 430 Watt PSU). Not sure how they do it exactly, but hey, more power to them right?

Still, did you try to upgrade your drivers?
