GTX 580 and an i7-950... running the latest nvidia 314.22 drivers. According to PCGW there's a known problem with i7's crashing, hopefully that's my problem. I've suspected for a while that my GPU might on its way out, I've had very mild artifacting in other games, but this crash is very consistent... At the same spot every time... I posted on the 2K forums and someone else was having the same issue, nothing new on there yet. Already included the dxdiag and msinfo reports, so hopefully that will skip a step. If they come back saying it's a known issue and a patch is imminent great, if not I'll do whatever troubleshooting they want if it gets me a fix (short of reformatting).
