Random Game Rebooting Error

  1. Alright, so Im going to try to be succinct here. Any time I try to run certain games (the most recent is World of Warcraft, but others included W3 and Heretic 2 even) Im subject to random reboots and shutdowns. Mostly it just reboots or sometimes dies and looks like its still running but I get nothing on the screen. I have replaced: psu/ram/motherboard/processor/soundcard. I have reformatted and reinstalled windows. I have tried checking the temp and adding fans/taking the case off and aiming the air conditoner at it, and I'm convinced its not overheating. I have updated my graphics card drivers. I have installed all windows updates. The only thing that remains is I believe my video card, which I'm hoping is not the case, as I absolutely cannot afford a new one right now. Is there anything else this could be? Has anyone heard of anything like this? I've added the 3 latest minidumps and system info's below.

    AMD Sempron 2800+ 1.8 GHz
    512 RAM PC3200
    Windows Xp pro
    Radeon 9550 128 mb
