12GB RAM (6x2GB) DDR3 1333
1TB (1 x 1TB) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200RPM HDD

Which overclocking utility are you using? I faced a similar situation while overclocking my 9400 GT with EVGA Precision X. My drivers would also crash.

I suggest that you download the latest version of the drivers and then overclock it with either RivaTuner or MSI Afterburner.Also, keep a tab on your temperatures. Hope this helps.

Hey dude thanks for the post, yes I was using Precision X... I was under the assumption that that was the only thing you could use to overclock the 680. Anyways, new update, today I was playing BF3 then all of the sudden game closes and I get this error message:

A driver crash or complete shutoff is normally what happens when you OC too far.

Can you actually post the settings you are attempting to use?

I used to get that with my 580s, driver updates fixed it, eventually, so on that you may have to wait a bit for it to be fixed.

For the OCing: Download Afterburner & use it. PrecisionX is crap IMO.

And as raptor asked please post the settings you are trying to use.
