It would help a great deal if you could describe your system and what happens after the 10 minutes.

I am playing different games like GTA San Andreas Multiplayer,Halo Combat Evolved,Counter Strike 1.6,World of Warcraft and others.In the past on this computer i didn't have any problems with this games but now i don't know what happened.So they can't be corrupt because i played them before that problem emerged.

Well the CPU tempt varies between 50-55 degrees C and the video card is 35 degrees.Maybe the CPU temp is a bit hot right.If it goes very hot my PC shuts down so it is somewhere in the middle of normal and hot.I guess so

yes overheating i think can shut down PC to protect it but the game errors that occure are something to do with the ram or hardware idk.Is there a site for memory test or some programme or to search it in google because i had different programs like Registry Easy and Registry Fix but they didn't help at all.
