    ati radeon 9600xt
    winXP home edition
    6 fans to defend against heat and no over clocking except ati control panel OC run off 500w power supply

    up to date MB drivers and 4.4 cat game runs super smooth, But randomly will freeze with sound still running, then i will get a vpu recover error and game will still be able to continue. Curious as too wht would cause this. I usually have mirc running in back ground think that would cause it to crash?

    It is the OverDrive causing the problem, not Far Cry. When I first got my 9600xt I tried it out and got a VPU recovery within 5 minutes playing Desert Combat(bf1942 mod).

    It is such a minimal increase anyway, it's kind of useless, disable it.
