Videocard overheat?

  1. Whenever im playing any game and my pc is at a hot temperature. The game will freeze up for a couple seconds (or minutes). After it will continue again but the graphics are all distorted. The only way to fix it is to restart my pc. This problem never occurs when my pc is at a low temperature, leading me to believe its an overheating issue. I got a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 with updated drivers. Please help.
