Default 6600 Nvidia GT OC, Computer won't turn on?

Well, I built my computer almost a year ago I guess, and have yet to have a problem. Now today, I get home, sit down at computer, begin playing a game, then all of a sudden the computer randomly turns off... I thought it was weird, but reached down to turn it back on... It won't turn back on... Anything I try, it won't do more then have the fans just move SLIGHTLY then it turns back off.... I eventually removed my video card, and it works.. I don't really understand whats happening. I heard in another thread it could have something to do with the grounding, but I don't know how the video card has anything to do with the grounding. I look around it, and I don't see the card itself coming in any contact with the motherboard other then where it plugs into the PCI-E port.

Any help ASAP would be greatly appreciated,

what are the system temps?

Download SpeedFan and make sure it's not overheating. Also, what are the system specs?
