1)Game just freezes for no reason, and screen blacks out. Seems to happen anytime between 10-30 min. Happens both in combat and when exploring. Often merits a task manager forced shut-down. Sometimes, when i ctrl alt del out and alt tab back in, it recovers, but rarely.
2)When transiting between different areas i.e. when loading screen appears, i get stuck in it. That is to say, the loading icon at the bottom left hand corner is still moving, but the game just never loads.
3)When loading, game hangs/screen freezes.
Occasionally, when i ctrl alt del in order to get to the desktop (alt tab never works when the game hangs), i get a notice which says that "Changelist :1 has stopped responding".
My specs :
Intel Core i7 870
AMD Radeon HD 7770 PCS+
Windows 7 x32
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

-Make sure that your hardwares are not overclocked.
-Check your CPU and video card's temp.
if the problem still persist then note that
-RAM errors could also cause this kind of freeze. you should check your memories one by one with some bootable programs written for this kind of scan.
-Insufficient output from the power supply could also cause low performance.

32bit has 2GB Ram limit I guess, so most of your RAM Isn't being used AT ALL.
Also I have almost same specs except my Proccy is I3-540 and with only 6GB Ram.
:/ I can play the game at Ultra no ubersampling 32fps capped.
Also Update drivers, DirectX, and C++ Distributor.

I also downloaded several apps which tracked pc temperatures, and curiously, I noticed an overall increase in temperature during gaming, as well as temperature spikes which occur during the in-game hangs. Are these things normal?
On a side note, what does switching over to 64bit windows involve doing? I read up abit on it but I'm still confused about it. Will all my installed software still be intact after the switch? Please advice!

for the RAM test try this http://windows.micro...n-your-computer
Yes it`s normal for temps to increase while gaming . However if temps increase to an excessive amount for example 90C or above then it may be time for a general cleaning of your computer
switching to a 64 bit system from a 32 bit system may seem like a daunting task but really is simple . First though make sure your startup disc has both 32 and 64 bit versions .
64 bit systems allow the use of all memory installed . For instance you have 8 GB of memory installed but a 32 bit system will only see 4 GB and use only 3.25 GB of that memory .
Plus you can use both 32 and 64 bit programs on a 64 bit system . 32 bit programs will go in Program Files (X86) and 64 bit programs will go in Program Files
In answer to your question though after a format and install of 64 bit system you will need to reinstall all of your existing programs that you want to keep .

Edit: Had the game on my SSD for some time and the stutter while loading seemed reduced so I have to assume that it actually is a problem related to HDD and files loading from it.
