Im trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 in my new system:

i7-3770K @ 4.2ghz | Noctua NH-D14 | EVGA 680 GTX OC |EVGA 460GTX | ASROCK Z77 Extreme4 | 8gb G.SKILL Ares DDR3 2133 | Agility 3 128 GB SSD |  RAID0 WD AAKS 1TB | Seagate Barracuda 7.2 2TB | Corsair AX850 | CM Storm Trooper

Im trying to run a Live CD from an USB, used dd , ubuntu creator and unetbootin with same results. It boots the graphical enviroment but after a while it crashes. I havent had any majore issues in the past installing ubuntu on my other machines, but this one i have no idea how to fix it, any help would be appreciated.

¿Could it be something related to my graphics cards setup?

PD: Im running windows 7 atm, with no problems at all and ran lot of benchmarks so it isnt "hardware problems".

it can sometime happen that the hardware drivers that 12.10 was packaged with, are not yet "ready" for the system/hardware you have. You might have to wait for another 6 months for the next distro, unless and until some new driver / patch comes up.

Since you have an 8GB of RAM and you have already said that you are running Windows 7, may I suggest you to check if VirtualBox based Linux / Ubuntu is running on your system? You may also try to install a Wubi based Linux version, for the purposes of trying.
