    Since i bought this rig a year ago i haven't been able to play any games that runs on the valve engine(half life 2, css, portal etc) more than a few seconds and then the comp reboots.
    With Bf2 i can play max 30 minutes and Bf2142 maybe one hour then they crash exactly the same way as Valve games..
    All other games i have tried runs without any problem, even the more demanding such as Crysis, Far Cry 2 and Dark Athena.
    This is really anoying since the only game i bother about is BF and CSS.

    My comp consist of:

    cpu: q6600
    gfx: 8800 gt 512mb Point of View
    mobo: gigabyte ga-n650sli-ds4
    ram: 4gb(2x1gb supertalent02 ddr2 pc2-8900u & 2x1gb dimm ddr2 pc26400u)
    psu: 570 watt

    Cpu temp is at full load 60c and gpu is at full load 70c, i added an extra fan to the gfx and set the fan to 80%. nothing is overclocked.
    I tried with diffrent memorys, changed hdds, reinstalled a bunch of times, reinstalled windows xp 32bit, maybe 10 diffrent nvidia drives, also changed settings for the sound card but none of that made any diffrence.
    Havent been able to test with other gfx.

    Anyone else hade this issue and manage to solve it then please let me know, also greatful for all suggestions.

    I have been having a very similar problem, and it seems to only be with games using the valve engine.

    I see, do you also have a 8800 gt card ? Have you tried BF2 or BF2142?
