Some games advise closing down virus scanners while you play to stop the game from crashing, One game I can remember that asks this is James Bond Nightfire.

You might wanna check your PSU. ;)

Yeah make sure your graphics card is getting enough power, they tend to really put a drain on the psu when playing big games. Dont get a generic brand, get a nice 580watt known brand. Also close down ANY and ALL running programs that you dont need CTRL+ALT+DELETE and close everything you know is safe to close down down.

580 a bit extreme. A 400/450 runs almost all things :)

Games suddenly crashing sounds like a graphics card problem. More commonly it will be DirectX games that crash out like this. What games do you play that crash like this?

Well since I don't possess any of those games it doesn't help me much does it ? lol

Ok, so do you have ANY MORE games than the ones listed above?

Make sure you have proper cooling too. If the video card/processor get to hot it will start shutting stuff down.

It definitely sounds like your card is overheating.

Try formatting if its not the heat.
