    It might be a problem with your vid card getting hot. I'm not exactly certain though. But if it happens in every game you try it's not a problem with the games themselves.

    I realize that the FX cards arent fully compatible with DirectX9, but you might want to give it a shot.

    They may have put support in there latest Detonator drivers, requiring DX9.

    Well I don't know that much about the exact temperatures (I can't get any monitoring software to work at all on my PC), but your vid card is being worked while sitting at your desktop as well, it just gets worked more during games. Maybe someone else can help you though.
