301.42 didn't crash,current driver doesn't crash if i turn off ambient collusion in nvidia control panel.
I used nvidia 301.42 until swtor patch 1.5.1 , so its either the latest nvidia driver or the swtor patch.
I currently use 310.70 with Ambiant Occlusion OFF but SWTOR crashes at the Hyperspace animation either in Black Talon, or HM The Foundry.
But I'm gonna give 301.42 a try.
Edit: Still crash with 301.42 (on HM The Foundry. I did not try the Black Talon)
