I'm surprised that you say your PC work at all because the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P is an AM3 socket ( for AMD processors ) & your processor is an Intel i7 920.

Please check your specs again & post the correct information.

That's more like it. :) 

processor might be overheating. Is there time that it stay long enough to get the temperatures via HWMonitor or other tools?

In any case, when was the last time you cleaned your PC specially the cpu heatsink?
