In this post, we have compiled various methods that you can utilize to stop the game from crashing. You can try out either of these methods to optimize the game best for a smooth experience. They are as follows.
Changing the Resolution

Update Graphic Card Drivers
It is better to check if you have the NVIDIA 461.40 driver upgrade installed. This should ensure a smooth operation. However, if the problem still seems to persist you can try and install a previous version of the same such as the 460.79 version.
Don’t run the game in Fullscreen mode
While this is counterintuitive to the overall gameplay experience it is also another one of the easier, temporary fixes you can perform. Fullscreen usually saps more operating power so it is better to run it in a resized window. If your system barely meets the minimum requirements you can also use this trick to smoothen gameplay.
