Game Crashes Every 5 Minutes



I know some people have had crash issues, but I haven't seen any reports of crashes quite like mine. I had a similar issue with both Wasteland 2 and Diablo 3. 


The game starts off fine, I get through the intro with no problem. Once I am in the game, it runs with no issues. For about 5 minutes. Once the five minute mark is hit there is a loud, electronic tearing noise which is accompanied by a complete graphics shut down. My graphics continue to be out of whack in everything until I restart my computer. I recently installed a new video card, and was really not expecting to have an issue with Pillars.


Here is the Error Event from the viewer:

I have tried all of the recommended fixes from running as an administrator to playing around with the font folder. I really want to play this game, so I beg, NAY PLEAD!, that someone help me figure this out.
Thanks so much.

It must be a bug for sure. Same problem here, and same problem with blackguards 2. Gameplay crashed randomly in blackguards 2 always in the same stage, sometimes in the turn 2, sometimes in the turn 5, but always in the same stage. And after crash, graphics keep corrupted for other aplications until restart. This happened with my old gtx 460 and with my new 960, but the last patch for BG2 fixes the problem for me completely. So i think it will be fixed in the next patch.
