anything overclocked? as well i to have my bad company 2 crash here and there, you can try uninstalling bc2 and reinstall it then re-acquire the patch, see if it helps, as well make sure all your drivers are up to date... hope it helps

Ewww on the PSU.

If you think it's a hardware issue, go get furmark and do a stability test on that. Use Xtreme burning mode as well.

If that's fine then i'd say it's an issue with the game, do a full driver update and see if that works. If that doesn't, then roll back to an older version, I think a lot of people are using 10.7 or something.

I have never heard of that PSU now that you guys or gals have said, "EWW" to it, and from just now reading into it, like 37 british pounds for a 700 watt PSU, wow, that makes me scratch my head, I am starting to think it is the PSU not doing its job, If you spend small for a fairly high wattage PSU chances are you are getting the tail end or the left overs from other PSU's, its like a meal yo feed urself the good stuff but give your dog the table scraps that you won't eat (sorry for the analogy)
My XFX 6850BE is using the 11.5 catalyst drivers, no issues with bc2

I seriously doubt it's the PSU, don't get me wrong it's not great, but I doubt that's the issue.

In all honesty, if you can run Furmark on xtreme burning mode and it doesn't crash, it's not the PSU.

And yes, 10.9 I mean not 10.7 my bad
