My pc is 1 year old and this problem started recently i use

Quad core 2.93Ghz

Asus P5N-D motherboard

The problem is with all games, i tried installing different drivers, freshly installed new os, updated motherboard bios and i checked with evga precision, my pc freezes when gpu temperature goes to 80-82c. Its working fine in other times the problem is only when i play games. There was no problem before and it started recently.

Your GPU may be overheating as over the year it has collected dust in its fan. Try increasing fan speeds/underclocking or cleaning out the fan. Otherwise case fans may be getting dusty too, blocking air flow.
