Hello, my PC works fine except for when I try to play computer games. It tends to crash after 5-10 mins of playing (tested with Counter Strike: Source, Trials 2 and World in Conflict). Here are some details of my PC from dxdiag:

Son's PC had a similar problem. It turned out to be the cooling wasnt working efficiently due to dust build up around the fans. If the PC has worked fine with games in the past but this issue has come on slowly over time then this may be the cause?
