Hi guys so i'm playing bf3 and some times i'm able to play for hrs and sometimes i play for like 10 min and it crash but its bn happening 2 much now crashing it freezes bf3 so i have to ctrl alt + del to close bf3 so idk if this is a gpu problem or psu my gpu is a 7970 vapor x oc 1200/1600 i'm using a i5 2500k oc to 4.5 and a 650w psu the 7970 box shows i should use a 750w minimum but yea o,o. this is also with catalyst 12.8 so i'm wondering why is this happening i also ran a avast test and yea this is also @ 5760x1080 . Can this also be because of the ram ? because i was doing a test one time opening allot of calculator in windows 7 and it reached around 6gb and it crashed with only windows 7 itunes and google chrome and w.e is on the background, its using 2.39gb ram and battlefield uses more then 2 gb sometimes .

ok last thing to do to rule out some things uninstall the drivers than use Driver Fusion to fully uninstall of the rest left behind than reinstall AMD CCC 12.7 or CCC 12.8

Your GPU O/C might not be perfectly stable? Reset your GPU settings and see if that helps...
