Default Graphics while playing Stutters!!

Hi
Question? While playing most games on my PC everything is perfect, playing for maybe half hour, sometimes immediately the graphics start to stutter, feels as though graphics card gets hot..
Could this be the Athlon 1.4 Processor or the Graphics card, just heating up while playing, the graphics Chip is a Gforce 64mb Nvidia Im not sure brand of Graphics Card.
Forgot to add that it also starts doing this after setting to Low settings in the game!!!

Probably the graphics card heating up. Do you have good cooling on your system?

Yeah, sounds like the main reason.

Does that mean it doesn't do this on High Graphics? What sort of game are you playing? 64MB may not be enough; the Graphics card could just be too old.

Yeah, you should probably upgrade the card. If you're playing Colin McRae Rally and its heating up then it needs it.
