Hi, I have a 2008 Mac Pro 2.8 Quad-Core Xeon w/ 6GB of memory and I have been experiencing crashes while playing Diablo 3.

Heres what happens: I'll be in the middle of a dungeon run and my screen turns black and whatever sound that was playing when the screen goes black starts to skip, kind of like a scratched record. I have to do a hard reset on my machine each time. Sometimes this never occurs and other times it happens every 5 minutes of me trying to play the game.

This is my video card:

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285:

Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285
Type: GPU
Bus: PCIe
Slot: Slot-1
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 1024 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x05e3
Revision ID: 0x00a1
ROM Revision: 3434

Does anyone have any idea what's causing this? Or any ideas on how to mitigate the issue? Like I said, sometimes the game can be running for an hour other times 5 minutes.... Starting to drive me nuts.

in ways it sounds like u get a network packet drop or the network drops so much it hangs the client on ur machine what is the up and down and what isp do u use sometimes it can be on there end right now i am fine but on occasion each year i get massive drops in connectivity do to my isp node being located right at the power poll in my yard so i am getting full voltage to the cable for my internet so they have to replace the end and cut the cable to get me back up and running
