Default New computer problem

I got a new computer built last week its running
AMD am2 4600x2, xfx 7600gt xxx oc, asus m2n-sli deluxe motherboard, Sound blaster audigy4 , 2 gig 533 Kingmax ram, 430w thermaltake powersupply.

When ever i load up games after about 15 mins of play it will freeze for 10 secs sound will loop at the end then come good and i can play for abit more then will do it again and again. I have all the lastest drivers. Tryed taking the side of my computer and having a desk fan blowing in there and it still freezes so dont think its a heat issue. It doesnt freeze when surfing the web or talking on msn only when playing games.

I took out my 7600gt and tryed my sisters 6600gt and could only play for 2 hours with it but it never froze so maybe its the video card or could the powersupply run with the 6600gt fine but couldnt handle the 7600gt?

so please help this is driving me insane

Kinda wanna find out what is the problem before i take something back.
