have you recently tried running any other 3d accelerated games? if so, did you have problems with them as well?
try going to your display settings and turning off vertical sync (in both open gl and 3d). reduce your hardware acceleration a bit (or just turn it off) and see if that helps any.
also check the nvidia specifications on your gfx cards to see the recommended temperature on a load and make sure your cards not overheating. you may need a better cooling solution if your fan isnt cutting it, or if you pc isnt just properly ventilated
ive never conducted a load test, but i know there are programs that you can use to test your gfx card and temp. i instinctively tend to upgrade the fan, and psu because most computers that i build i use to play games as well so you will probably have to ask a G2G member about what programs you can use to run your load tests and what the results mean.

by the way it reboots, im assuming its the load being put on the gfx accelerator. though i may be wrong
do G2G staff a favor by posting your stop error code. to do this
1. right click my computer
2. click on the advanced tab
3. Under system and recovery click on the settings buttons
4. Uncheck the automatically restart button
5. Click ok, and close the tab.
Run steam and copy the stop error on the blue screen (you're going to have to write it down by hand).
Usually it'll be a little phrase and then a bunch of numbers looking something like
of course i just made that one up. but yea. it would help to know the stop error as well so it gives some kind of technical reference point to where the problem is.
