  1. Hi all,
    Ive never had this problem before and ive played some higher ended games like masseffect 2 on this system. As of recently, my PC would shut down systematically at approximately the same time while playing Napoleon. I hope it isnt a hardware issue, but here are my specs:
    - GIGABYTE GA-X48-DS4 ATX Intel Motherboard
    - G.SKILL 4GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
    - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Processor
    - ASUS Radeon HD 4850 EAH4850/HTDI/512M Video Card
    - Western Digital Caviar SE16 640GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
    - Pioneer 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model DVR-215DBK
    - Rosewill RX850-D-B 850W Power Supply
