I'd recommend at least a 450W PSU from a good brand

unless your components have been damaged that no longer sounds like a heat or power issue. if it starts crashing earlier before you have even had a chance to get some gameplay i'd say either corrupted game files, drivers or OS.

Um, first of all, this is definatly a power supply issue.

Second, I wouldnt even be worried about the 200Watts as i would what kind of voltage readings that thing puts out.

I bet it does about 10A@12v+. You should have AT LEAST 20A!

Unplug any unneccisary fans, CD roms, harddrives, or really anything using a 4-pin Molex connecter and try again, that should decrease your usage of the 12v rail, and should keep you up for a while.

BUT GET A NEW PSU. You put your components in danger doing that.
