    Hello, i am having a problem with my PC.

    My Setup

    Pentium D CPU 3.00GHz
    2gb RAM
    NVIDIA Geforce 8600 GTS
    Gigabyte GA-N650SLI-DS4
    Coolmaster Centurian CAC-T05

    This problem happens in both Vista and XP.

    The computer can run fine for hours if i'm just on the internet. However, when I start playing games after about 30
    minutes it crashes and reboots. This happens in Vista and XP. Every, single, time. I've tried different software settings, reinstalling drivers etc, yet this does nothing. This makes me think it is a hardware problem. Overheating? I'm not sure. Can anyone tell me what this could be and how I would fix it?

    Thanks.

    Something may be overheating, but could also be a problem with the memory or mobo. Run memtest for a while and see if it comes up with errors.
