My computer, which I built in the summer crashes whenever I play games for a short while. Oddly enough it is only a couple of games that do it, but what with the steam sale that is now the majority (aheh).
I'll give a list of games that crash and don't crash, then I will post my hardware specs and OS, and lastly I'll add any additional notes.
- Battlefield 3
- Splinter Cell Conviction
- Deus Ex
- Minecraft (all the time but only when it gets close to the two hour mark)
- Mirror's Edge
- Skyrim (crashed twice after a REALLY long time of gaming)
- Witcher 2
- Total War: SHOGUN 2
- Starcraft 2

run memtest on test 5 for 6 times at least.
What is very strange is that your system doesn't crash on witcher 2, one of the most demanding games out there, but crashes on mirror's edge and minecraft.
Run OCCT on gpu while running prime 95 on small ffts and give us temps for gpu and cpu. Also inform us about your overclock (if any) and your cpu cooler.
awesome. i hope gpu temps dropped to about 70 as well on load and yes prime95 small ffts + occt gpu test simultaneously will give you the absolute max temps as both cpu and gpu are stressed to extremes.
