Windows 7: Game Crash, Green lines Please Help [PIC included]

Game Crash, Green lines Please Help [PIC included]

I currently own a 8800gt and happily play cod4 on max, battlefield bad company on medium and a handful of other games which came out within 3 years on max-medium max with reasonable fps. But on some games like eg Crysis, I play in on medium-low fine, i get around 40fps but all of a sudden within 10 mins of gameplay the screen freezes and vertical green lines appear all over. Windows locks up I cant ctrl-alt-del, nothing. Same thing with Mass effect 2, Arma 2, Just cause 2 and some more I currently cant remember. The newest addition being Star Craft 2 which locks up within 10 seconds of gameplay. Sometimes the computer even crashes when the game is paused or in the menu!(Star Craft 2 included) My specs are i7 920, 8800gt and 6gb ram. My case is well cooled and the gfx card fan works fine.

Please help me with this problem, if anyone has had the same thing. I know I should get a new gfx card as the 8800gt is dated but for now my budget is low.

Here is a pic of Starcraft 2 with the crash:

Have you ever tried to run game in low configuration (safe mode)? I know you might already done this before but updating new graphic driver with directx.
Try this free video stress test: FurMark: Graphics Card Stability and Stress Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Quote:
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit
The computer doesn't have BSOD, just freeze???

Did you update your graphics drivers?
NVIDIA DRIVERS 258.96 WHQL

It might also be related to GPU overheating, use speedfan to check your temps:
