    I have been playing C&C3 and Splinter Cell: Double Agent on my sager 5790 (8700gt) and they randomly crash to desktop, but I don't get a 'solution' from the windows error program. When crashes happen, there isn't any warning and there isn't a specific pattern. Could this be caused by memory issues (but no blue screens...), driver probs, or just vista blows? Thanks in advance.

    Also, make sure you install the latest patches for the games you are playing.

    Vista could very well be the root cause of the problem.
