8.1 - Game Crashing in the Garage on nVidia GTX 650 Ti - Only with the 'New' graphics engine

That is, if you consider running the lowest possible graphics options at a mediocre frame rate to be "no problem" ;)

Just crappy graphics and sound and I am confined to a 19" monitor...oh well.
Sure is great to get some game time in though rather than just tinkering and crashing, tinkering and crashing....

It is a CAD workstation and I make my living on it. I don't really want to go downgrading it for a game.
WoT 8.1 plays havoc with it, the last lock-up had me doing a system restore just to make it work again. It was doing some weird shit.
So I don't think I want to mess with it any more.
Nobody has come up with an answer that works, here or on my ticket, after a month trying.
So I think I might just accept the fact that WoT is incompatible with my set-up.
Thank goodness for my old XP...!

If it also crashes, then the board is faulty. If it doesn't, then it's the new GPU.
It's the only way to check WHAT is actually defective of the two.

Also FWIW -- I lost a lot of battles on the rubbish video card. It's no fun shooting at stuff that isn't there.

Edit > I see vsync isn't checked in the game settings/graphics.... re-reading this post i see it said try turning it on and not off... Doh, I'll turn it on and hope i stop the in garage power downs.
New Edit ... I hope this isn't too soon to say but I think i can safely say that enabling v-sync in the game settings has fixed my power offs while hanging out in the garage ... i'been hanging in the garage for 25+min now since enabling it and haven't crashed yet :D so; so far at least it's an improvement.
