Greetings, I've recently just built my computer (1 week ago) and I have been having problems while playing World of Warcraft.

When I'm playing WoW, about 30 minutes into gameplay, my computer freezes, my monitor is still on, and my computer is still running, but my keyboard / mouse / mic ALL shut off, and I have to hard reboot.

I've also noticed this on Warcraft III, about 30 minutes into gameplay the exact same thing happens, I have to hard boot. It only seems to happen with Blizzard games because I was playing Age of Conan for 3 hours, and my computer did not freeze up.

My computer is not over heating, the temperatures at the time of the shut down is around CPU 19-24°C
and System 30°C. I'm not sure of the graphics card temperature, but like I said before, I was playing Age of Conan on FULL graphics for 3 hours and nothing happened.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. My graphics card drivers are up to date, as well as Windows Vista. Also it sometimes switch my system date.

My computer specs are:
Duo Core 3.16ghz
EAH3870 X2 1GB
4gb DDR3 RAM
ASUS P5E3 Premium
