Top of the page under the advertisment go into user cp and then go into signature. keep it no more than 5 lines. what are you specs of your computer? i guessing thats waht you are going to put into your sig, but just incase i thought i would ask.

so it's a hardware problem. you have an enough power, your card runs fine. the only thing i can think of would be the CPU becoming un-stabble. try to put it to normal and see if that fixes it. do you have the graphic card OC too. if you do reduce it back to normal.

It could be a game glitch have you tried to update or search the web for problems like that.
