So on my Alienware M17x that had been crashing randomly could be every 30 seconds to every 2 hours having CTD's ... I Installed Windows 8 ... and sure enough .. today i have had 3 - 5 hours of gameplay no crashes... i will continue to play tonight, but my crashes are indeed gone...

Yet my desktop computer running Windows 7 has never had an issue...

Geforce GTX 570 SLI
2500K Intel Quad Core I5 CPU
8GB DDR3 1600 MHZ Ram
SSD 120GB OCZ Harddrive

Now my alienware which is a older system for sure..

Core 2 Duo 2.8 GHZ
Geforece 260M SLI
8GB DDR3 1333 MHZ
SSD 120GB OCZ Harddrive.. .

This one was crashing.. lots, but now with windows 8 ... Not at all...

Whatever is happening is something to do with the client and hardware communication. Drivers, memory leaks perhaps.. I have heard it all, but if the client was causing memory leaks why does installing windows 8 solve it. to me its so sporadic it doesn't make sense, and i can understand why Bioware has not fixed these issues yet, kinda hard to troubleshoot something that you can only replicate sometimes.
Just tried Esseles on a different character on my main comp and game crashes at final cutscene, note game didn't crash on this character at this point before last patch, although it did crash out sometimes at random points.

On the computer that dosen't crash it also is running windows 8 rather than windows 7; whereas I have windows 7 running on my main PC.
