World of Warcraft crashing on Win7

Hello folks :)

Whenever i try to play World of Warcraft (i just formatted my computer, so it's clean, no useless applications and crap), after some minutes the computer freezes, no BSD, no auto reboot, just freezes, i cant move my mouse, i cant alt tab and the sound/audio freezes too, i have to push the reset button...

My setup is
Mobo: P5KC Asus
CPU: Intel Quad Core Q6600
GFX Card: SPRAKLE GTS 250 nVidia GeForce
RAM: Corsair Value 4GB DDR3-1333 Dual Channel
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 60GB (only Windows and WoW is installed here)
HDD: Western Digital 500GB

Any idea what's going wrong? I'm using the latest nVidia drivers, i've tried to reset the BIOS stuff, but nothing worked...any clue?

This only happens while playing WoW though, i can leave my PC or browse the internet for hours, it wont freeze...

Welcome to the forums!

Many people had this problem and installing older version drivers for Nvidia solved it.

Install an older version from the archive:
NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search
