Probably over heating,My 9200se used to do crap like that all the time,I finally took off the heatsink and put a thin layer of AS5 then after that i screwed a 40mm fan to it It helped a bit but only to the point where it took an extra 5 minute's to shut off

Take a house fan open the case blow into the cas on high during game play. If it helps the its heat.

Try streamlining your case if it heat by tucking away all the wires using zip ties. remember you must have the same amount of air coming in as going out. usally a decent size fan in the front of the case and the exact same size blowing out the back. (with the usual cpu/gpu fan)

Here are to good links on airflow threw a case. please take time and read all.

Try the house fan ideal I posted before you run out and buy a new case fan..

Just open the case, use a house fan on high blowing into the case during gameplay. if it helps then we know its a heat issue.
