First things Firsts, I'm a new builder so maybe I did something wrong.

My build:

AMD 64 4000+ 939 socket
2 Gig Corsair ram (TWINX2048-3200PT)
BFG 6800 GTOC
Ausu A8N-SLI Deluex Motherboard
Antec 480 Watt Power Supply
SoundBlaster audiogy 2

My Problem:

During normal use (word, internet exploring, chatting, etc) my computer works without major problems except for internet explore, which locks up after awhile of use. Then when I put my computer under a load, playing video games, my computer will restart. However, by restart I mean my monitor turns black and I get post beeps 1 long and 2 short and it requires me turning my computer off/on again to be able to use my computer.

Could something be overheating?

Any advice would be very helpful,

Jared

I think your gfx card is overheating and has either fried ir shut down to protect itself from the excesive heat. You can get a new cooler for the card.
