remove the factory OC on the GPU. Are you playing it in dx9 mode, did xp ever support dx10? you may have to fiddle with the game to force dx9/

One thing that could be worth doing is cleaning some dust out. I was on the verge of insanity when my completely able pc was crashing on all sorts of games. I couldnt figure it out. Turns out the gpu was quite full of dust, i removed the cover, cleaned it out and havent had any problems since
No it's not approved by microsoft, and I bet that's why you have those crashes. Actually, I tried getting that myself when I didn't want to upgrade to windows vista, but ended up reinstalling OS because that DirectX 10 'fix' made my PC very unstable.

If you want to play DX 10 games, get windows 7 man.
