    Video drivers, power supply, memory and overheating are your most likely culprits.

    Update your video drivers to the newest catalyst drivers from ATI and update your DirectX version to 9.0.

    Secondly, try updating your VGA (usually included with motherboard chipset drivers) as this may be to blame.

    Rick is dead on.... random reboots are most commonly associated with Video drivers, power supply, memory and overheating. I have worked on several machines with bad RAM and Power Supplies.
    Are you using mixed RAM? How long does it take before your comp. reboots? What are your system spec.s? Any info. you can provide will help better narrow down your issue.
    Cheers ;)
