    try changing the AGP setting in your bios from 4x to 2x (or 1x) it might ne a video problem.

    But that might slow things down. I think what you should do is make sure that your CPU is properly cooled, an imporperly cooled CPU may cause system freezing and shut downs.
    A faulty HDD may also be the cause, I would check both of those two factors.

    this happened to me once and tried everthing finally I took it into the shop and it was a short on the MOBO...and when things heated up it would expand and cause the short..what I did was take out all the cards except the vid and took out the MOBO and put in on my wood desk and to make sure it wasn't shorting on the case...and sure enough it would still lockup...had to go with a new mobo

    Yeah there was a thread ages ago by cam, who had problems with his CPU and Mobo, the thing went kind of back and forth, but some of the things mentioned was that Freezes and random reboots are usually an indication of a mobo fault or in some cases an improperly cooled CPU, can you get a hold of something like Motherboard Monitor and post what the normal operating Temperatures are.
