That lead me to believe that perhaps it was sound related, because while the screen is still blank, the sound starts and stutters, and then the computer crashes. This happens sometimes with other OpenGL games too.
The sound begins to shutter because, presumably, (at least by my experience) your nVidia driver crashed and the X process is eating 100% CPU time.
Try connecting to the downed machine using ssh after it had crashed and report back with your findings.
