Sounds like the video card is overheating. Any messages appear? Can you check the temps? If not you can download this small program to tell you everything about your computer along with temps.

I would start by updating all drivers....video driver, sound card driver (if applicable), chipset drivers....
Did you build the system or is it a boxed PC.....either way start with updating all drivers. I assume you mean Diablo 3 when you say Diablo. I have not ot a chance to play it yet or see the specs on it ....im sure they are high.....But yeah, just start with a full system update of drivers.
