My System Specs

Default

That sounds like an unstable overclock on CPU, memory, or QPI/bus - that's what happens when my rig had an unstable OC while gaming, although it restarts on its own after doing a memory dump.
When GPU dies on its own it usually comes back after about half a minute (perhaps crashing the game but generally back to a useable desktop). --at least that's what my GeForce 8 and Radeon 4800s did
Does it happen at stock frequencies (judging from your OC in "My System Specs"?
