I ran a reliability test and Video Hardware error. However the drivers are all up to date. I did just get this card from a friend (ATI 6970) but like I said the drivers are all up to date.
I'm sure its not much of a big issue, but when you game for a couple hours and leave and do it again the next day...
The cache from the game's internet maybe abit clogged up and having your system slowly breakdown.
Start off with downloading ccleaner and defraggler, clean up your computer and let it do a normal defrag when your not on your computer.
It may help to disable any active antivirus as some of them will get in the way, while scanning in the background on gamermode or letting you know if it spotted joker stealing the batmobile.
If its none of those that I mention and it becomes to frequent we may check your settings to see if something is bugging out by chance.
