I saw another person post earlier that Windows 8 Fixed there issues...

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.
