Crashing during gaming

Hi all,and a happy new year to you all too
Im having problems with my system when gaming,about 20mins into an online mutliplayer game my system crashes and reboots.Im thinking that its either a graphics driver or hardware problem,if someone could tell me from the minidumps where the problem lies i would be in your debt.
I have the latest 9.12 hotfix drivers installed and all other drivers are upto date also,im at my wits end with this problem as my rig is for gaming but i cant game on it
Any help at all on this matter and i would be very appriciative,and all the best for 2010

Has this system ever run stably, did you build it yourself

Hi Pauly and thanks for the rapid reply
To be honest it hasnt been running good since i installed 7,i have built the system myself and the temps are well within tolerable levels...Theres about a 10 degree diff @ idle between the cards,1 card is @ 26 degrees and the other is @ 34 degrees.
