probably your video over heated, used to happen to me all the time then I installed Riva Tuner overclocking program and that helped alot! or you can install another fan inside your case to help disperse the heat more...or a little more expensive is install a liquid cooling system...btw what game where you playing?

GTA4 is a power hungry game BTW, was it hot more than usual in the room? is it getting adequate air? where you at a point in the game that was very intensive for the vid card? all these help with the card over heating! also depends what video settings you choose that makes the card run hotter...

The room was cold like 60F
Yeah, my compute is getting air in and it's in a open spot.
I think it was my blowing up cars and it was like 18 cars blowing up.
Settings are on auto config, which where on high.
It always runs smooth on those settings and i don't lag. I was wondering why it just went off, but I guess i should put them on low.

well you don't have to lower anything, just install riva tuner and you can control the fans to run more! so it will keep your cards and cpu cooler

Well my computer keeps turning off even on a simple game like combat arms.
I never had this problem, should i worry?
How do I fix this?
Need new video card?

No it just shuts down, no blue or black screen.
Just turns off and I turn it on and runs like normal, like I said before
only happens when playing games.
