I do not know if it's my graphic card or not, but my computer seem to restart itself and BSOD when only playing graphic games like fallout 3, war craft 3, War Hammer, and other. I suspect it to graphic card problem, so i message EVGA ( brand of my graphic card). They asked me to check everything from psu voltage, graphic card's software. They all seem to work fine, but my problem still occur. I did not send my card in yet, because i do not have 100% thinking its my graphic card

CPU: Q6700
Mobo: asus p5q
GC: Evga 9800GTX +
Ram: Cosair 2x 2gb 1066mhz 5-5-5-15
PSU: Cosair 650w

CPU :30C
GC:38C

It sounds like your PSU is crapping out under load.
I would run a diagnostic program to check and make sure it's holding up before RMAing the card.
Cosair is usually a good brand, but everyone has a lemon here and there. 650W should be enough for your system though.

I agree it seems like your PSU might be dying.

You should also eliminate the RAM as the possible problem. Do you have the RAM speed/timings/voltage manually set in the BIOS? Have you run memtest86+ overnight to test for RAM errors? RAM errors are often the cause of BSOD's.
