Diablo® III

D3 randomly crashes while playing

I have a random crash while playing D3 for 2 weeks, and it crashes after playing for 5 to 30 mins. I'm sure it is not overheating. I've monitored the GPU temperature and it's all around 149 (℉), and the PSU is fine.

my system specs are:
Intel E8500 3.06 ghz
asus p5Q PRO
Asus GTX280
4GB ADATA DDR2 800
525W PSU

I've read up some threads and found out that some people have the same issue just like mine.

I also run SC2 for testing the graphic card and to my surprise it works normally after playing 2 hours. Not like others' issues their systems crash every time when playing 3D games.
So should I run more games or it's just the problem between D3 and GTX280?

I am sorry for my poor english :)

Pallasathena,

I'd have to recommend swapping the card out with something else to see if the problem remains or not. That's the only way to know for sure if it's the card or not, but it sure looks like it is.
