    ASUS EN8800GTS 640MB Graphic Card used about 120 watt from Power Supply, is your PS strong enough. Asus p5wdh have some utilites tool on Motherboard driver cd "PCprobe", so you can monitor voltages, coolers, temperature of CPU and Mobo for example.
    try to also install some tool for your VGA, maybe you can find it also on VGA driver cd.

    start the tools, start to recording monitoring then start the game. after rebooting or shutdown chek the log file.
