I believe my computer more than meets the requirements for the game but even after lowering settings I am still experiencing stutters and even crashes. My PC temps are completely stable, drivers are updated, and I am not using any sort of background processes aside from Origin itself.

Yea.

I can confirm this. After a while (hour +) the game starts to slow down and stutters. Only exiting and getting back in removes the problem.

Doesn't seem to have been fixed yet sadly. It's kinda funny that every Bioware game to come out after DA:O has had memory leaks upon launch. Da2's were fixed, DAI's were fixed and ME3's were fixed but DAO and ME2 never got fixes. XD

I've ran some tests with a 8GB paging file, and it seems to saturate it almost instantly when loading a single player game, no matter the graphic options. Having the pagefile in the SSD doesn't cause much problems, but having it in the HDD makes the game stutter a lot when you first load in, and gets heavier the more planets you travel.
