    Your CPU is probably heating up , if you can run CS 1.6 , which is really not at all demanding then i believe it is the problem of heating.
    Do you use a dedicated gfx card , deosnt look from your descrption that you do .
    Do 1 thing :
    Download CoreTemp , you must be knowing when your PC restarts like say 3 mins (for example), just Alt+tab out of the game after 2 or 2 and a half minutes and check the temperatures.
    As much as i know my old pc's GFX card had died , and i cant live without CS 1.6 , so i used to play on extremely low settings , and i never cared abt the graphics , but as soon as i used to turn up the settings i used to either get a system restart or CS 1.6 would crash
    I had a E7500 @2.93 , DG41RQ board , 4gb ddr2 , 600W PSU
    i really think its because of the CPU Stress that the system is restarting.
    NFS,PES,FIFA are more demanding !
    Please cehck back and reply
