Maybe you should take a break more often?

I've played Warcraft III before, if you play online too long it starts to lag for some reason. I think for me it was the network lagging, not the graphics. I'm not sure since I haven't played it since my old PC. (Pentium II 400mhz, 256mb RAM, ATi Rage 128) Sometimes I wonder how I played Warcraft III on that. :p

warcraft III was an example... it still lag even if im not playing, like if im going to my office (and i left my PC on at home), when i come home from work then play warcraft the FPS was like droping... and other game (i play fable too) just closed......
the point is my 8800GTS has a problem when turned on for about 7-8 hours, but my PC is doing fine... but when i restart my PC... the problem gone...

Go to task manager and see how much memory and cpu usage you have. Could be a ememory leak

Exactly what I was thinking. He mentioned the symptoms of a memory leak.

Close all the startup programs you can by going to run, type in msconfig, click on the startup tab, and click off anything not important. If that don't work shut down all programs in taskmanager that it lets you and see if you can play longer. You can do a guess in check till you find the program with the memory leak.

A virtual memory insufficient maybe?

Note for your simcool 450W psu, it will blow your EN8800GTS 320 out. A friend of mine also used that psu and his 7300GT got burned and void the warranty of the vga. Careful.... :wink:
