9800 GX2 Modern Warfare 2 Black Screen

I've been trying to play CoD: Modern Warfare 2 on my system and after an hour (or longer) of play the whole screen turns black and my system freezes. Sometimes it will flicker a few times and I get a windows error message saying that the display error has occurred and has recovered but most of the times it just freezes completely and I have to reboot the computer.

I'm running this with EVGA 9800 GX2 and problems like this have never occurred before. I leave WoW on all day for a week and it never crashed down like this. Also I played Mass Effect on ultra settings and this has never happened before. I tried toning down the graphics on CoD MW2 and the problem still occurred. I downloaded the latest driver and even set the GPU fan at max speed while playing CoD. My GPU temperature idles around 70C and when I play WoW it goes up to about 80C. I am not sure what the temperature is when I'm playing CoD but I was told that the GPU is able to handle temp above 100C. Any ideas what the problem might be?

My specs:
Intel Core2Quad 2.66GHz (w/ Liquid Cooling)
EVGA nForce 780i SLI FTW
Thermaltake 1000W Power Supply
OCZ 8GB Memory
EVGA GeForce 9800GX2

When I read this "but I was told that the GPU is able to handle temp above 100C" I nearly choked. That just can't be right! Well according to Nvidia, the 9800 GX2 IS able to operate at up to 105C so I guess you were right on that.

I'd set everything at stock speeds (CPU/GPU) to see if that sorted out your problem. If it did, you likely have a power or a thermal problem as OC'd components will generate more heat and require more power.

Wrong thread retard second most games are incompatible with most macs except for those sporting an intel cpu and decent gpu.
