Watch Dogs running out of RAM

My hardware:
2x HD 7970
8 GB RAM @ 1600 Mhz
i7 2700k @ 4.5 Ghz


I started paying the game yesterday and I got 40-50 fps of Ultra settings and SSAA

Today when I tried to play the game, when I pressed continue the game loaded and then immediately crashed giving the error "uplay has detected an unrecoverable error and must shutdown. Crash dump was created at "C:/Program Files(x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/crashes" and it said Windows was running low on ram and watchdogs was needed to be closed."

I restarted and this time monitored RAM with MSI Afterburner and again when the game crashed afterburner was showing 5GB RAM usage just before it crashed.

The only other thing I did today was add new XBOX 360 controller. Other than that everything was the same from the day before. I don't think that is an issue. Please Help.

It crashed as soon aI have checked multiple times.

    But that does not explain why it was working fine yesterday and now it is crashing even for medium settings.
  3. Don't use msi afterburner !
