I have not made any changes besides updating all my drivers when I installed Windows 8

I have the latest BIOS drivers from Gigabyte for the motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3

I have the latest Video Drivers from Nvidia for Asus GF MATRIX GTX 580

The SSD drive has also been updated with the latest firmware from corsair for 
Corsair 128GB Force 3

The computer was custom built in November 2011. It was initially running Windows 7, but is now running windows 8. 

I will try those steps you have recommended and update with the results. 

Thank you

I seem to have this issue solved. I have not had a crash in 2 weeks.

I followed these instructions from an activision forum. (http://community.activision.com/message/413595793)

Crash Fix

I Strongly recommend this. Download : NVIDIA SYSTEM TOOLS  ( http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia-system-tools-6.08-driver.html )

Install everything. Then click on "Performance" icon on the dekstop.
"Performance" tab
"Device settings"
Mark custom
And turn the Graphics clock down 100mhz (witch will probably be 695)
