What power supply are you using? Try monitoring those cpu temp and gpu temp see if you're experiencing high temps. Overheating can cause sudden shutdown and also lack of power

your pc probably needs dusting..

open the case and clean out any dust. for the cpu and gfx card used compressed air. blow it over the cpu fins and fan (you may have to remove the fan but make sure you put it back and dont loose any screws.
for the gfx blow compressed air into the fan and then under the shielding. use a lint free clothe to get the dust from the rest of the case. make sure you use a cotton cloth as synthetic 1s will give off static. any areas you cant reach with a cloth or has fins on it blast with the compressed air...
for the motherboard you should just blast it with air and not rub it with any cloth.
personally i use a combo of a pure sable brush and compressed air but sable brushes cost a lot for bigger 1s so a cotton cloth or glash cloth us use for spectacles should work well enough...

things to keep in mind.
the more vigorous you are with the cloth the more chance there is of a static discharge. so make sure your earthed. you can buy an earthing strip or get a length of wire and strip about six inches of the shielding back and mak it into a loop to put on your wrist. the other end strip the shield and attach to a grounding source such as the copper pipe of a radiator...
the most important thing is you get as much dust off the fins you see as you can this is where the compressed air comes in.
if you cant reach something dont force it.

if your not comfy doing any of this. take it to a local pc shop and ask them to clean it for you. it should cost no more than 15 pounds.

going by your other post your pc is fine for them games. its cooling thats the issue.
get a 3rd party cooler and get it fitted to your cpu. add some high flow case fans and your temps will drop

That's a very long list. If you seek sims 2 and 3 requirements, a dual core with 2gb and a nice 9600gt like yours will certainly be sufficient enough to run both sims 2 and 3.

that looks like it should definitely play it, maybe take some canned air inside the computer and clean any dust off that could make it overheat and try re-seating all the cards and boards incase there is a loose connection causing the software to flub up. A game shouldn't just up an quit, it could also be a problem with the game files getting corrupted or the windows registry. running something like tuneup utilities 2011 could potentially fix it, or reinstalling the game or both.

not really but if you have no air flow through the case things will get warm.
you may just need to invest in some new fans.
