I just completed my first build. My computer seems to run fine on intial startup. It looks like all the hardware has been detected. My problem is when I play Warcraft with the highest settings it crashes my computer. The game will run for a few minutes usually before it crashes, when it is running it runs smooth and looks great. unfortunatly after a few minutes it crasehs my whole computer... it will either restart or kick out of the game and give a black screen. I got the newest drivers for my graphics card, have all the windows updates, and the newest bios. How can I fix this issue? Is there something I can do to test all the hardware to make sure everything is working how its supposed to? What method do you guys usually use to test your machines when your done building them? What is a good way to trouble shoot these problems? My current build is bellow.

Does said crash occur only during game play? If so, you may need to look at the core temps of both the processor and the graphics card where possible!
How do I look at the temps? Is there a program that I can get that will monitor that for me?
