System Blacks Out And Reboots

OK, this is starting to irritate me somewhat. When playing games, I can play for a little bit, (normally a few seconds) before the screen goes black and reboots.

Any thoughts on cause?

Could be your vid card overheating. Is it overclocked?

Is this all games or just a few?

Whats your PC's spec?

Can you start swapping parts in and out Ron? How finely have you combed through your BIOS settings?
