My System Specs

Default frozen screen

hey guys well,
when i play a game my comp started to randomly freeze,
this is odd because it runs all the games i play fine...
i know heat is not an issue
my video card is an ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO
proc is an athlone 2x64
motherboard MCP61P-NARRA-00 (thats all the info i could get)
os: vista
this is an hp desktop computer, nothing was changed before it started to freeze
memory is working fine i already tested them... so what do you think is wrong?

if memtest comes out fine, how about prime, and temps that come with priming? :)
furmark for gpu only. if it crashes there...drivers,overheating,in need of another one...or...psu cant juice no more :)
or the hdd is going
or the mobo is getting warmer.
everest is your frend,frend
