GTX 660 Ti PC crashing
Hello, I just upgraded my GPU from an ATI Radeon 5670 to an MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Power Edition with 2GB of VRAM. Before the upgrade, I was able to run modern games, including Skyrim and Far Cry 3 on the highest graphics settings. Now that I've upgraded, I've been having one issue after the next with hard freezes and driver crashes. I started out on 310.90 and then rolled back to 306.97 after seeing some posts here. Even with that driver, I just crashed again while trying out an ENB with Skyrim. This crash, by the way, was to the point where I couldn't even get out of the game using ctrl+alt+delete. I could only get out by doing a hard reset. I thought maybe the card just can't handle that kind of load, but on the last crash my fps was running consistently at 40-50, and at the time of the crash, it was at 40.5 fps. Any help would be appreciated! By the way, this is a fresh install of Windows 7, so I'm pretty sure it's not the previous ATI drivers. My system: OS - Win7 CPU - AMD FX 8120 Eight-core Processor, 3.11 GHz RAM - 8 GB PSU - Rocketfish 900W Mobo - Asus Sabertooth 990FX

I'm running 335.23 with no issues with games on a gtx660 oc edition. I'm yet to try Skyrim with this card. All I can suggest is try reinstalling the nvidia drivers, give the latest drivers a go or even the beta drivers 335.50 You can use DDU as posted on these forums to completely remove old drivers and left over entries. The chances are your current drivers have got corrupted. Skyrim mods can be very tricky with many dirty edits and compatibility issues with other mods which can cause crashes so ensure you read and check each one before installing.
