Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.40GHz / 4gigs
Hello! My pc is weird nowadays. It worked great 3 days ago but now it has started freezing everytime I play a game. I can play for a while but then the whole pc suddenly freezes and I have to unplug the power. I tried updating my graphic drivers but that did not solve the problem..
I have a Nvidia Geforce 8800GT. I have been playing games such as Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops in full graphics without problems but now my pc freezes while playing games! Please HElp!

did u overclock ur cpu, ur grahphics card? check the cpu and graphics card temps,
use gpu-z(google) to check the graphics card temperature in the sensors tab, and use speedfan(google) to check cpu and other hardware's temps.
the cpu u have should not exceed 60-65 degree or 70
the graphics card should not exceed 80 degree altho the 8800gt's temp rises a lot
