I appreciate your answer, but the things mentioned on that page isn't sacrifices, I'm willing to make to avoid these blackouts. What they are saying on that page is to use a resolution on 1024x768 (compared to my current of 1920x1080) and close all other programs to free up memory (I currently have 14+ GB RAM available). I also need to run programs like Mumble while in-game, so that won't work for me.
I have no problem running other games in max quality in the highest resolution and I specifically choose to buy an expensive graphics card and lots of RAM, so I didn't have to compromise.
But thank you for your answer.
