Disable sidebanding if your bios has this function
Depending on what chipset you have these settings should be under something like Advanced chipset features>AGP & P2P bridge controll.
What mobo do you have?
What make power supply?
How many watts is the power supply?
Please read this artical it addresses these concerns and many others

Hold off on the bios settings for now
I have to look up your psu (power supply) to make sure it is adequate, I'll get back to you on it.
Now for the temps, if 41c is the cpu temp then thats very good and is not the problem. But I am curious as to why it restarts at that particular temp. If you are using monitoring software to monitor the temps make sure that the shutdown threshold is set to 60c if its set lower to say something like 50c then this could cause this
Does the new video card have a extra power cable that needs to be pluged into the psu and did you connect it?
I didn't list it before but what cpu also?

On your psu there should be a decal that lists the amps on all the rails could you post them

I have a AMD 3000 cpu
The amps are
Toyal Output Voltage=420W

1 the computer restarts most problems with the agp buss and newer cards result in a blue screen with a error or a system freeze not a restart.
2 the 12v @ 13a is low for gaming system I would not use anything less than 18a on the 12v on any new system.
If you could barrow a psu that is better to try that would confirm this but look at this Antecof comparable watts, scroll down and checkout its output on all the rails and compare it to yours, see what I mean.

That is a voltage switch and should be set to the voltage that the wall outlet supplies.

normally with any kind of restarting I take a good look at the psu specs especially if I don't know the brand
