Specs: Windows Vista
My pc keeps crashing in about 5-10 mins ingame, my screen disconnect and the pc stays on, cant get it to work otherwise i shut it down from behind or keep holding the shutdown button (sounds like the pc is working/thinking). This happends rarely when i use the lowest settings, but when i use the highest settings it crash about 5 mins ingame. This happends with about all the steam games i have and WoW, some steam games it dont even work with setting low settings on, it crash after 5-20 sec's.
When i mean settings its: Resulotion and effects(pretty much tried evrey ingame option)
My PC spec's:
Its a bit new version ( i think ) so i couldnt find it on the sites "Product option".
Windows Vista Home Premium -
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @2.33GHz -
4,00 GM RAM -
NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 x2
My PC never gets warm, noisey and hardly never lags(Not even on high settings). Its a bit over 6 months old.

have you OC:ed your card? have you checked if it is warm?
And i think that card is a heavy bottlneck for the rest of your system.
Or it may be defect....
sometimes when i play some games the screen may go brown,gray and the sound is on for a little while and the computer still is on, i know that is because of overheating so check your temperatures! /And check for latest drivers for you card and patches for your games).

sry, im not very skilled with computers and english so i have a little problems with understanding :P
Whats "OC:ed" ? Im sure my pc dont get hot or overheating, cuz it can happend in 5 seconds in some games. I have 2 of those cards, just so u know. and i dont think they have to high requirments, if thats what u mean with " heavy bottlneck ". There isnt any new patches i dont have or drivers i need for my card. The thing u might have a point with (of what i would guess) my card mabey is defect... i've thought of formatting my pc, but im not even sure if it change anything. I've read about its might a virus, a file that crash the pc(not sure what that was about), old grapic cards, to small memor, defect cards (from this thread) and so on..

But anyway thanks for your advise AntonFZS, i hope u will respond
