Well you kinda need to upgrade your PC since i'm not having this issue with my PC and game maxed out :P

Please provide the necessary crash files. Where to get them is described here:

Alright. it appears it only happens sometimes. i am now playing the game with no problems on very high ultra and high mixed settings. request close post. but please see if you could get rid of the error. i see other people have this problem as well
