So I just picked up this game on steam, and the game is periodically crashing for me at seemingly random intervals of play. Out of nowhere the screen will just go completely white, and sound will continue to play in the background. A few moments later and my monitor will lose video signal from the card, and I'm forced to do a hard reset. No other game gives me this issue, and I'm unable to pin down a fix elsewhere. My specs are as follows:

Windows 7 64-bit
Intel i5 quad core processor
4gb ddr3 corsair ram
Radeon HD 4870 video card
Corsair 550 watt power supply

The game came pre-patched to 1.1. Here's a list of fixes I've tried:

Updating sound and video card drivers
Forcing my video card's fan speeds to higher
Fixing my video card's clock speed at 750mhz (normally it switches from 600mhz while idle to 750 when in use, and this has been known to cause problems)
Disabled all overclocking implementation
Disabling my realtek audio in the system hardware manager

None of these things have fixed the issue for me, and I'm beyond frustrated. Particularly with Eidos, which seems to have no interest whatsoever in working on this game further. If anyone has encountered a fix to this issue, I'd love to hear it.
