I have a 7600GT but have noticed similar problems with Crysis as well as WoW. Though the game usually doesn't completly crash, the screen does go black and i hear the audio loop for several seconds before continuing on its way. I have noticed on another computer with an 8800GT, it does the same thing, however not for more than 6 or 7 seconds. I have reinstalled my video drivers which as solved nothing. Hopefully this is just temporary until nVidia comes out with a new driver pack.
