Default Crysis instability

Let me first start off by saying, I downloaded Crysis to try it out before I bought it, to see just what kind of performance I would get. I found that I loved the game more than anything, and I do intend to buy it, unless... the game crashes are still in the retail, uncracked version. I get random lockups (the whole computer... not just game) under Vista x64 (using the x86 bin of Crysis). I do have my PC overclocked, but I do believe it is stable. I've been playing at these settings for half a year now, and I've never had issues.

What do you guys think? How is the stability with the game on your systems?

I think its the nvidia drivers. When i was only using the driver that came with the GT i had no issues with crysis or gears, now that ive gone to the newest drivers, gears and crysis both are giving me tons of problems and ****ing me off. Same problems in both xp and vista, so its not the game.

truly stable computer = 8 hours of Orthos and at least 1 hour of ATI tool artifact test with no errors

Nah, an indefinite run of SMP Folding is the real test.
And its beneficial to society as well.

Truly stable = playing every game you own with no BSOD due to the overclock. Orthos is retarded.
