Hello,
My GTX 670 crashes, it doesn't seem like there's much of a reason for it, it's crashed while on the desktop, playing the walking dead, playing GW2, but that's pretty much it. I can play BF3 with no problems. I'm using the 304.75 drivers that GW2 recommends. Do you think it's a bad card? Or just a glitch.

what powersupply do you have in the system? also what cpu and board do you have? can you tell us the temps while under load too? (use gpuz to get them)

I've tried rolling back a bit, but it worsens the issue. My only concern is that it crashes on the desktop occasionally. Perhaps its because GW2 recommends (and I'm using) Beta Drivers?

if you get crashes in only some games and not others its def software issues.....since GW2 is so new I am not surprised there is still bugs so I would expect issues...have you tried older drivers? does it change anything?

yea its very possible its bc its beta drivers...does the crashes at desktop happen with the older drivers? how about the issues with the walking dead?

It happened with The Walking Dead on the "older" drivers (really just the latest non-beta drivers) But I don't recall the drivers crashing on the desktop with those drivers, I can't remember for sure though. It only happens occasionally on the desktop, and doesn't ever seem to be triggered by me clicking something.

yea driver caused crashes are typically "random" in nature....If I were you I would wait and see how the next drivers nvidia comes out with work and see if that helps your issue. doesnt seem like a hardware issue bc bf3 works perfectly fine.
