Possible overheating.
Possible failing psu.

Check all fans are clear of dust etc...
If possible try a bigger psu.

Though could be the graphics.

ok i will try that for now thanks m8, wow is a nightmare with error 132's at the moment :(

Though i think this is overheating,you could test your ram for errors/leaks.

Here is a direct link to Memtest (cd bootable)

Download to your desktop
Burn to disc
Insert the disc and reboot the pc
Let memtest run for at least a couple of hours.

You may have to change your bios settings to boot from the cd.

Bios may need to read cd/dvd > hdd > Floppy > Usb

Is it just a game or several games which crash your PC?

Have you checked for the latest video and sound card drivers for your system?
