Default Problem with myu Radeon 9800 PRO

I beleive my computer hardware problem is my graphics card

radaeon 9800 pro,
latest drivers and such, but when i play games .
warcraft 3, cs source, tribes vegeance etc, it freezes and i gotta reboot!
this occours from time to time,
ive installed 3 new fans over the last 2 days and still get the same problem ,

im sorta a noob on computers so if u use really technical stuff i really wont know what ur on about,

reason why i think its the heat is cause when i put a normal fan used for humans next to the computer with the case open, it doesnt happen at all, also it reaches around 72 degrees when playing games otherwise averagely its around 50 degrees, donno if thats normal at all
really need help on this!

ive enclosed a diagram of my computer and where the fans are incase that helps

and my specs

512 ramp
pentium 4

what kinda PSU ( ur cpu casings power unit) do uhave??? and what do you mean by changing the fan on ur graphics card??

sometimes this issue culd be do to the fact that ur card is not getting enough supply from the power unit

You should just buy a VF700-CU and some Artic silver 5 as thermal paste. Sounds like an overheatsink issue.
