Does this only happen when your playing CPU intensive games? If so, check your CPU, it may be that that is causing the lockup, not the GPU.
Is there ANYTHING different about the computer, the software, the atmosphere around the computer?

you could use either compressed air from a can
or sometimes i just use a soft paint brush to clean the dust of all of the components mainly the heatsink, the fans and your video card
try that and see if that solves the cooling problem.
use everest to monitor your temps
that will tell you exactly how hot the thing is running

As far as temperatures go, this is what everest tells me:
Motherboard - 24C
CPU - 38C
CPU Diode - 52C
Ambient GPU Temperature - 43C
GPU Core Temperature - 75C (This is just at load)
I have already tried dusting the heatsinks and video card off and I even moved my sound card away from the video card but those tricks havent helped either.
