the gpu goes up to above 55 degrees C, and the burny icon comes up while i'm playing.

I think this could be the problem?

GPU max temp is usually around 80-100; before the GPU begins to be damaged from excessive heat. As long as you are not constantly in that range while playing your most intense games, you should be fine. Ideally you want your max to be <80.
It depends how much higher the temp is above 55.

If you would post the screenshots that have been requested we might be able to help you.

Here's a link to posting screenshots

Screenshot Tutorial

Download CPU-Z v.1.58 and post a screenshot of the CPU tab, Mainboard tab, Memory tab and SPD tab (select a Slot# that is occupied).

Download HWMonitor v1.18, and post a screenshot after you've played a little but before it crashes.

What video card are you using?

We also said to post a screenshot of HWMonitor.

Your board can use 667 or 800Mhz.

You are running at 667. Double Data Rate (DDR) 333 x 2 = 666 (really 667)

While your RAM may be fine, run Memtest86+ as posted above.

If anything, it's your PSU. Your +12V is way out of whack. May not be pushing enough power to the GFX.

see i get this too on some games,
go to a games config options and try running a game in a window, if it works then yeah thats the problem.
mixed response on it though, people say update graphics drivers, kill antivirus and firewall programs and any third party ones that may interfere.

I'm willing to bet that the 12 volt rail is pushing more voltage than is being shown in the HW monitor SS.
I posted a Thread a little while ago about my 12 volt rail being low too. As Digerati points out, it seems to be related to win 7.
Do you happen to be runing windows 7?
