Hello Ascendents.

The freezes during gameplay may occur due to a few reasons.

A. The backdated driver, that is not the case here, as I am seeing.
Code:
nvlddmkm     nvlddmkm               Kernel        8/30/2012 11:50:16 AM
B. An old card, not compatible with the newest and graphics rich games.
How old the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 is? Stress test it with Furmark.

C. Dust.
Clean inside the computer, very carefully, clean the card, and the fans thereto.

D. Heat.
If it generates a high heat, it also may cause crashes/ freezes. Monitor the heat of the system totally and the heat of the graphics card individually with Speccy.
________________________________
*Totally not related to your issue, just a question ... is there any reason that you set ESET as inactive? And, still making it inactive, it is hampering your network performance?
If needed, you may download .net framework externally from filehippo, and dont set nvidia to update automatically. Search updates manually after a few days.

A.i even updated to the newest driver available

B.It was during Aion a 3 Year old Game

C.I've already cleaned out all dust

D.I usually check temp during game it usually sits around 59-62 and before it was so intense in game the gpu usage was 100% and gpu temp went up to 73 degrees and no crash so its not getting so hot where it would crash.

Also with furmark whenever i click Log GPU Data(temp..power) in version 1.10.2 the app crashes
