Default Computer Shutting Down..

Well, here's me problem. I've had my computer for about 4 months now and it hasn't given me problems, but for past 3 days, my computer has been totally shutting down when it loads multiple characters at once on the screen at the same time(World Of Warcraft).The game will run for about 3-5 minutes, then my computer will shut down. At first I thought it was my video card, but every other game I plays runs fine for hours without ever shutting down, games like Bioshock, and Warcraft 3. So then I opened up my computer to see if it was a dust issue, but everything was clean and the fans were free of dust. The the word overheating came up, so I ran World of Warcraft with my computer case open, and both cpu and video card were not overheating at all. Then some people said that my video card might be going bad, but its only 4 months old. These are my spec:

------------------

Time of this report: 5/29/2008, 17:01:23
Machine name: CHAOS-PC
Operating System: Windows Vistaô Ultimate (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.longhorn_rtm.080118-1840)

I have a Geforce 7900GTX , and a Antec NEOPOWER 550 550W ATX12V V2.2 80mm Fan power supply.

Like I said i have been running these specs for 4 months without any problems, this just started happening all of a sudden.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello,

Does it shut down with the shutdown dialogue, restart, or just turn off instantly?

Power supply or temps IMO.

What are your temps?

Tried removing your overclock and run on stock for a while to check stability?

Well according to Everest ultra, the temps on my CPU are 88c/90c. Haven't tried removing overclock yet, but ill try it. I have a Zalman with thermal paste, I figure that should be keeping it cool
