Skyrim Patch After Thanksgiving

The Bethesda Softworks Forums have word that patches for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim should come out the week after Thanksgiving, which is November 24 (thanks Gamer's Hell). Word is:

Wanted to let everyone know that the next PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 updates have been submitted for certification, and that the PC patch is coming too. The current estimate is that they will be live the week after Thanksgiving.

Just my opinions of course, but I strongly believe most crashing issues are user error.

I don't think I have had a BSOD since I quit buying junk memory from local "computer shows" back in the day before Newegg. I remember this one particular time when I was having a lot of game crashes so I ran memtest or some such program and it detected errors. Went to the next computer show to attempt to trade in the bad memory. They tested it and their device surprisingly showed no errors. I assume some other unlucky customer ended up with it after that. Anyway, point is, I tend to think game crashes and BSOD can, at many times, be attributable to bad hardware. Improper handling without static protection can damage hardware without a detectable shock. How many people do you know handle new hardware this way? The majority in my personal experience. People also do stupid things like buying two $150 video cards just to say they have SLI when they could have bought a $300 card that would outperform the two cheaper ones without introducing more possibility for error.

I've tried overclocking a few times. Honestly, I never saw any discernible difference in real world performance.
