Is the graphics card being manually overclocked? If yes, what are the core and memory clock speeds that you are using?

Is the CPU being overclocked? If yes, what core clock and voltage?

That system with a 560se is like buying a Bugatti Veryron and putting wood tires on it.

Put all the settings on low and turn AA Off. If it doesn't crash then bump up the settings to medium. If it crashes onMedium tan you can probably a mix of low/med settings . When I had my 460 that's how I would have to run or it would crash with higher settings. Your card will also need an OC.

In short - NO.

Like ko888 mentioned, it could be an unstable clock. If you're OC'd then reset to default. If you're not then re-install drivers.

Try lowering the AA in-game, say 2xMSAA or none and strictly use post-process. Or go into nVidia control panel and enable FXAA and disable AA altogether.

so i had setting on high default no AA...there was a night where it ran good played 5 games straight no crash but majority of the time it crashes...so i just tried playing a game on low setting it seem to run fine no crash and i bumped it to medium also seemed fine but ill give an update when i get a chance to play for a couple of hours straight and see how it goes.
