Wolfenstein: The New Order
the game goes through the menus ok but when I start a game it runs 3 seconds of the intro and locks up my whole rig forcing me to hit the reset button. I use SLI and have tried with SLI both enabled and disabled and have tried with and without antialiasing and even tried lowest resolution and detail settings and keep getting the same issue. this game is too expensive and uses too much of my downloads for it to be useless and unplayable. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3.6Gh Quad Core i5 2500k
2x 1Gb Geforce GTX550ti's (SLI)
Windows 7 (x64)
Latest Nvidia Display Drivers.

It is more than likely your CPU. The games basic requirements as listed on Steam, call for an "Intel Core i7 or equivalent AMD". Also unfortunately, I can assure you that it will use more than 1 GB of VRAM. Yes you have two cards, but since this is a "OpenGL" game (not DirectX), there is no Sli profile or dual card usage per se.

His specc's are fine, and should run the game without issue
a quick google turned up this
same problem, with a rig that far exceeds what the game needs, so your assumption would be incorrect
more people with the same problem, 1 person with a R9 290x
it isn't clear from your post, but i assume you got both the game, and your drivers up to date?
Further searching says updating GPU driver to 335,23 or more fixes it for most people

Hoover, I somewhat agree with Drenus and Rickmon. Are you getting any "Video TDR Failure" messages? It sounds like that could be what is happening on your system. TDR is short for Timeout Detection and Recovery.
Or, it could be a known NVidia problem with "Micro-Freezing."
Which drivers are you using exactly? I'm using the 337.88 on a new NVidia Titan Black but some folks are saying stick with the 335.23 as more reliable. Others are reporting having to roll-back to the 331.82 or 331.93 for the problem similar to yours.
And last I heard (like a month ago or so) There was no support for Wolfen for running SLI for OpenGL. I think I read that the engine didn't support it.
You may have to try them to see which works better for you, but drivers sound like a good place to start. I've always believed you don't update video drivers unless you're having a problem.
You're having a problem.
Steam does in fact say use an I7 as min Req, but most others disagree saying Core 2 Duo. That sounds like a bit of a stretch to me.

Can you run it states my gpu's and CPU are just above recommended and my ram is way above recommended.

Can you check the version number? Right-click on My Computer, select Properties. Then find and open Device Manager. Click on Display Adapters then click on your model. What's the number reported next to Driver Version on the Driver tab?
My 337.88 looks like this: Driver Version: 188.8.131.5288
