Computer keeps on freezing

Alright so my gaming computer keeps on freezing anytime I try to play a game. Some times it will freezes 5 minutes in and other times 2 hours in. Really random also it sometimes freezes just sleeping.

I don't get any blue screens or anything it will just freeze and I cant do anything beside turn the computer off than on again. I recently got a new motherboard but the chances of that being the problem are like slim to none because there are no moving parts right?

I just rehook everything up to make sure it was fine so everything is were it should be now.

Here are my specs

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

CPU
Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.30GHz 30 °C
Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology

RAM
8.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)

Motherboard
ASRock Z75 Pro3 (CPUSocket) 35 °C

Graphics
VG2230wm (1680x1050@59Hz)
1023MB GeForce GTX 560 Ti (nVidia) 50 °C

Not to sure why the graphics card is at 50c right now usely that at like 30 and than like 60 when gaming.

Oh also all my drivers are up to date I have tried reinstalling them and installing them again but it still freezes.

My computer used to freeze because of new 300.XX family video drivers. if you will try something with GeForce 296.10 Driver or lower, it might get better (no freeeze). Later on you might want to chek if power supply is enought for what you have. and last but not least remember that i have 0 experience in anything with computers so might be wise not to listen me. P.S. If you going to install previous video drivers i recommend deleting olders 1st...

I think it is because my graphics card is getting to hot when playing planetside 2 its getting to 80c+ which is way to hot for a geforce GTX 560 ti.

Is there anyway to cool it I have a case fan blowing right onto it but still its running hot

I have this case
