What PSU do you have? Could you also check your GPU and CPU temperatures while gaming?

Might a well throw in some new audio and video driver while you are at it but it does seem to have more to do with temps and gpu issues like not being capable of withstand those type of games for long... that or some corruption in your drivers and updating may cure it.
