Default Computer freezes during games

This has been happening for a long time now. My computer would always freeze during EA Sports games (I'm not sure if it happens with other games as well because I mostly play sports games). Lately, I've been playing NHL06 hockey and the screen would stop in the middle of a game, forcing me to restart the computer. Since getting this game, I've not been able to finish a single game of hockey.

Specs:

Intel P4 2.40GHz
Kingston 511MB DDR-SDRAM
RAEDON 9600 SERIES 128MB
Intel Motherboard (Model D865PERL) (version AAC27648-208)

Board Temp: 28C/82.4F
CPU Temp: 37C/98.6F
Power/Aux Temp: 33C/91.4F
CPU Voltage: 1.49V

Has this ever happened to anyone and can anyone help me out please? Thanks!

How many watts is your power supply listed for? and who makes it? 9 times out of 10, The PSU is to blame because its not feeding the computer with enough juice. are your drivers up to date? becasue it can also be driver conflicts causing the problem.

PSU is not your problem being that the system freezes and does not reboot. Add more RAM see if that resolves mthe issue, I am almost sure it is your system specs.
