Default Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising

I just picked this up on steam, a few day ago. 30$ for a stand alone expansion is not bad. I played the original for a long time; I really enjoy the addition of loot and the many ways to customize each squad, in this RTS. The addition of corruption and redemption, in this one, adds a nice twist. Relic are the current kings of RTS IMO, although I have yet to try out StarCraft 2.

Are there any other players here? If so, anyone have problems with crashing? I keep getting lockups that cause my computer to restart. I get this awful sound, kind of a buzz or loop, and the game freezes. I only have problems with this game, I can play Metro 2033, Stalker CoP, and/or AVP without issue.

I played last stand mainly before I neutered the 3d capabilities of my rig.

Overall good game, had absolutely no issues

I have had no issues with this game. I've had a lot of fun playing Last Stand online with some people i know however i haven't been able to get around to playing the campaign on co-op (hardest difficulty yet) due to one of them being away right now.

I play DOW2 online quite often, although I haven't picked up Chaos Rising yet (too busy enjoying BC2 right now)

I really hate GFWL...I can't even change my gamertag. instead, you must make a new account (and a new email account!) if you want a different gamertag.
