I recently installed a new mobo and cpu and now whenever I am in a game it crashes, requiring a reset to fix it, I can play a game for about 10 minutes before it crashes.
It runs completely fine when not in Games

Here is my specs

Motherboard: Asus m3n78-vm
GPU: Msi 9800gt 512 mb
PSU: COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO 600W PSU
Ram: 4 gigs DDR2 667mhz
CPU: AMD Phenom 9750 X4 - 2.4ghz
OS: Vista 32bit ultimate

I have installed all latest bios updates and drivers
Is there maybe an issue with my cpu mobo combination?

I would bet its a heat issue. What are your CPU temps? Does it only happen when you game or hardware intense apps?

Though I did notice your mobo does demand DDR2 1066 for AM2+ CPUs while you are using DDR2 667
