I wonder if that was some sort of game glitch that caused that or a hardware issue. I am leaning towards hardware or simply a small power failure however nothing else powered off in my room. Sorry a little off topic but maybe now I don't know
Not to be rude, but a little Google goes a long ways.
Speedfan is a terrible application and should not be used. Use GPUZ to monitor your temps. If what it says is true, 108 is beyond the thermal threshold and is why your machine shut down.
Back to before, an Nvidia card at this point is your best bet. If you can scrape a little more for the above posted 670 I highly advise it. NVCodec is the technology behind Shadowplay, and is essentially how you can stream or record gameplay on an Nvidia card with almost no impact. Performance in a game is one thing, but wanting to stream or record is a whole different ballpark. For lower end rigs, NVCodec is hands down the best option budget builds have to streaming and recording.
