  1. I've perused the Steam and 2K forums and find all sorts of postings about this, but no solutions that work. So I'll ask here in the chance someone has a fix. :)

    Civ V has a very bad memory leak problem. Doesn't take but about an hour into the game and everything starts stuttering and then it eventually crashes. I've done all the recommended fixes including tinkering with the virtual memory and emptying the temp folder and have the most current drivers. Nothing works to resolve the crashing. There's nothing wrong with my system. I have an i7 proc, 12GB of RAM, and am running two GTX 460's in SLI. That rig can run any game out there at top settings without breaking a sweat. Except for Civ V.

    Anyone else experiencing this problem and possibly have a fix?

    Thanks in advance...
