Hey guys, I've been starting to have some issues with my PC freezing while playing FFXI. It has always done it now and then in the past, but lately it has gotten pretty bad. I generally run 2 instances of FFXI at once, but it happens even if only running 1(rarely). Though I guess it should also be noted that I run the 2nd character at a different resolution (if that could affect anything at all).
In any case, it's generally always similar things that cause the crash. Job abilities (pretty much all of them, though meditate is a repeat offender), and the CS when you enter a maw (when screen goes fuzzy and makes that "whoosh" sound before you turn into light and fly into it) are what makes it happen the most. It has never done it while just standing around in town or any other zone really and is always while I'm doing something.
I recently updated to the newest ATI drivers, though that's causing another whole set of problems that I won't list here for now since I haven't had time to really test it.
I know people often say to make sure there's no dust on the video card and to make sure it isn't too hot, but just hot hot is "too hot"? Mine generally sits right around 120-125 F (48-50 C). Is this good/bad?
