Temp is fine.
What games are you trying to play with onboard video ?

I know only Deus ex, maybe the other games are to much for the onboard graphics.
Though I don't think that would cause a shutdown.
If you are able, an upgrade to even a low end dedicated video card may help, and a ram upgrade would improve performance as well.

Then I would think maybe a software issue.
