Are you able to get back to the desktop? Do you get an error message stating that the before mentioned program has stopped working or is unresponsive?

Also, for the sake of being thorough could you kindly post your build specs?

He's asking if you can Ctrl/alt/delete and your computer is still functioning properly and only the game is freezing. ???

Also, since you've been playing for 30 min. it could be a heat problem. What case is it in? What psu do you have? Is it big enough to run your card? I figure it is but all these will give us a better picture of the system you're running. What about the operating system, which version and what bit 86x or 64? I see 3.25 GB usable, does that mean x86?
And the first question about game or machine freezing/locking up?
I found this on the official website for system Recommendation
Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit
Processor: Quad-Core CPU
Memory: 4 GB
Hard Drive: 20 GB
Graphics Card: DirectX 11 compatible with 1024 MB RAM (NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 560 or ATI RADEON 6950)
Sound Card: DirectX compatible
Anything less will most likely give you problems. And I know it's not the minimum requirements it's the recommended, but I have found that the minimum is just that - barely able to run it, and usually not well.

And I've read that if you update your firmware for the video card it should solve the problem.

yes im running win7 32 bit, my case is a coolmaster storm enforcer with plenty of space...got one 200mm fan in front, one 200mm fan on top, and one 120mm on back. both 200mm blowing in case and one 120mm blowing out of back. and i updated the drivers for that card.

Good on the drivers but is there a firmware update for your video card. I think there is and that is what needs to be updated

Another thing I've seen people have success with is downloading afterburner and putting a slight overclock on the nvidia
