PPC programs normally shouldn't care but operating systems may do some timing calibrations etc.. at startup that require more reliable timing and your system has exactly "correct" timing to trigger it..

This is problem that can't be solved fully but some adjustments are possible.
Same setup on my laptop and it works. However on my laptop, Im able to use what ever settings I like without crashes / hangs.
I can use triple buffering and other options like that without problems.

The only difference's between my laptop and PC are;
PC is an SB600 and Im using an Nvidia 660 Ti
Laptop is an SB700 and Im using the crappy Radeon HD builtin to the NB.
