If I try to turn the graphics up past the default at all, the game crashes (black screen flickering, stripes flickering, eventual crash). By crash I don't mean the game just crashes, I'm unable to alt+tab out or ctrl+alt+del and end up having to force shutdown

Issue Details
In Might and Magic X Legacy I get problems with anything but default settings (trying to turn the shadows up a little, texture quality, etc.)

The screen starts flickering black, and one time all the npcs and the GUI disappeared from the game. Eventually it stays black and crashes. I've tried turning gfx card fan up but it doesn't help.

Tried only turning up "object details" from medium to high (still has very high and ultra) and immediately crashed.. kinda sucks having all the armor look like blobs with no detail :/ it must just be something with this game not liking the card, because I have skyrim modded for better gfx and I turn everything to max.. & this game has much simpler graphics.. hoping for a patch I guess
