ASUS ENGTX460/Win7 64bit and BF3 Freezing
Hi all,
Im having some serious/frustrating issues with running Battlefield 3 (and WoW in the past) for more than 5-10 minutes without it freezing up. I'm convinced it is an issue with Windows 7 64-bit drivers and the gtx460. I have updated all of the drivers to the most recent. Freezing only occurs in graphic-intensive games; other than that, there hasn't been any freezing within the OS. Any help/insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I have almost the exact same setup and other then having a 2nd 460 in my system I'm getting the exact same problem for bf3. So can anyone figure this out? I've updated drivers, reseated my cards/RAM, checked for opened bf3 ports...nothings worked.
