Video driver crash at tutorial

I've very recently decided to start playing Eve, but for some reason, the game constantly crashes my video driver!

I've went through and created my character (as you can see), and started playing, what I assume is, the tutorial. I've went around and rescued some personnel of the destroyed ship, and the next thing I have to do is to destroy the Warp Disruptor (I think its called that).
I target it, orbit and fire my weapons, destroying it in the end. But as soon as it explodes, my screen goes black and then resets, and the only thing I see is the mouse cursor and I can hear the sounds in the background.

What I did:

-restart the game/computer
-verified integrity of cache folder
-updated video drivers
Temps arent going over 40C, btw.

AMD Athlon II x2 250 @3.6Ghz OC (tried at default clock, same)
AMD Radeon R7 260x factory OC
6GB Ram

If any more information is needed, please ask.

Thank you.
