What does this error mean??

Hey guys, I've got a pretty new PC and have just recently started having games crash every so often after a few hours of play. If anyone has any solutions or ideas on what to do please let me know. I gather its something wrong with the graphics but is it the card or just the PC messing up? Its a 8800 GTX btw

This is the error report i get:

I'm afriad the problem is still happening and it even ended up blue screening me earlier aswell =(

Hmm, sorry to hear that - you say it is a new machine, so perhaps better to take it back and ask for one that works properly. This sort of thing should definitely not be happening on a new PC.
