    You didn't give us your power supply, I suspect your PSU might be impacting game performance. Check if any of your parts are bottlenecking - culprits are often CPU, GPU or mobo.

    Try dropping your settings and see if anything changes - possibly an overheating graphics card or CPU, or the CPU just can't handle the high settings you're pushing through it. Also run a diagnostic on your hard drive as any bad sectors would cause the game to crash if its trying to access data - does it always happen in the same part of the game?

    Download realtemp and MSI afterburner to keep an eye on your temps.

    Sorry forgot to add I do use Msi Afterburner and the all the gpu cores read 35-42c when playing. I also have turned off the fan control to the cpu and have it full on when I play. the cpu reads 32c ( have and ac next to the computer which is nice) PS is a thermal take 700 watt single rail
