    Hey, my PC configuration is:

    Vista Home Premium 64-bit, 2 GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 @ 2.53GHz 2.40 GHz

    EVGA eGeForce 8800 GTS 512MB DDR3

    I play Call of Duty 4 and Counterstrike: Source, both on Valve's Steam, and my PC freezes after I play for a short time. It's only when I play games, though, so it must be my GTS video card over heating, right? It freezes the screen and sometimes there is a loud scratchy noise that comes out of the speakers. Once in a while the PC will just restart, but it usually just sits frozen until I force shutdown.
