Guys my PC is only 1 yr old.
When I start ME3/Alpha Protocol the PC crashes within 10 mins (Maybe due to failsafe as my GPU is bad :pfff:  ).
But the older games like Hitman, Splinter Cell all work fine.
Recently the fans make too much noise, so I cleaned them nicely. But still no effect!
I am ready to upgrade my GPU. But if there is any other problem please tell.

PC specs:
AMD Phenom X4 Black Edition 955
4 GB DDr3 RAM
1 GB XFX Radeon 4350 HD
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-MA74GMT-S2


Other Info
Monitor: Samsung SMB2230 1080p (1920 x 1080)

M not good with hardware but have little knowledge. So pls help.
P.S.: I am considering 5570, 5450, 6670 or 5670 for upgradation (Suggest).

You need to monitor the heat of the cpu and the gpu to see which one is getting too hot and causing the shutdown. Which fans were getting too loud?

This chart will help you to see which cards are rated higher and the 5670 or 6670 are the better rated cards according to this chart.

If those temps are on idle they are way to hot and you need a better monitoring program to watch your temps while playing your games. I am going to link you to these programs.

The MSI Afterburner is the one where you can monitor your temps under load. Also see your fps and set your fan speeds that will increase when the temps rise. Also the user manual.

Plus I will link you to some other temp programs and a burn in test, it is a stess test for your GPU. You have a bad heat problem. What is your PSU watts and brand? Good luck and let us know what is up after using the programs.

The temps of the gpu at idle are the same as what I get in game. So they are much too high and will cause the shutdown when gaming. The cpu temps are also very high and will cause a shut down before the gpu will. It's obvious that your fan/heatsinks are not doing the job of cooling and you most likly need more case fans also.
