My System Specs


If it's "any game", my first guess would be overheating.

Have you tried running a vid card stress test over a period of time to see if you can duplicate the error? If you can (i.e. running for aprox. 15 minutes leads to an error) duplicate it, then try again with the case side off and a house fan blowing on the card.

If the error doesn't repeat with the fan blowing on it you can be fairly sure that it's an airflow problem inside your case.
