Default Will This Solve My Problems

Whenever i play a game after a while my PC will freeze and the picture will stay on the screen and im forced to reboot. If i were to get a new video card would it solve my problems? the card i use now is a geforce 6200

I have the same video card and it has never gotten over 40C. Of course my PC is also freezing when playing games as I said in another thread.
