    Are u sure ur graphics card runs at 59 -60* ....it shouldn't hang at that temp............Check the temp of ur CPU ..That might be overheating...........................ur CPU should run at say 45-55* at load...while playing games

    guys over heating is so much problem now a days in summer..
    my sys(a64 3000+ on A8N SLI Prem +6600GT+3 segate HDD in Raid 0)

    everything is over heated even after i have a total of six fans in mu cpu(even after my modo uses heat pipes to remove the fan from teh chipset)

    ideal temps are so high:

    CPU 47
    Chipset 48
    gfx 62
    Hdd 55

    my room is on the roof so it gets mighty hot in daytime (and sadly i dont have AC)

    my damn 4 year old tv tuner card is also HOT to touch...
    there is no workaround

    15 to 20 degrees above room temp is pretty standard for systems with stock cooling, I don't see any temps to get agitated about, plz understand the vast majority of temp readings on the net are either AC or temperate room temp (bout 24degrees). In the Indian summer conditions you should expect bout 18 to 24 degrees higher

    then it is really hot....

    u have to improve the air flow, add fans, dont keep it in a closed place... leave the side cabinet open.. where is the HDD installed in ur case... put a fan upon it...
