Get a massive new heatsink/fan set for the CPU, one rated to cool an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ because that CPU dissipates 120Watts, yours, much less so a cooler the 6400+ would be overkill for yours, which is a good thing.

Most modern mainboards now will shut down the computer if the CPU gets too hot. This happens without warning.
I suspect the heavy CPU load of newer games is getting your processor hot, fast.
Don't forget to clean the old paste off the CPU and put new heat-conducting paste back on when you replace the fan/heatsink.

You also might look into your BIOS and see if the trip-point of the CPU temp is adjustable.
