Default PC flashed then shutdown

I was playing the new splinter cell for a little while, when out of no where the screen flashed green then went black, then my fan started going really fast, i thought the thing was gonna explode. So i flipped the switch on the back of my psu, then turned it back on, and it started beeping rapidly, so i restarted it again, and now its running fine...

Im scared to start playin any games though, anyone know what happened?

Overheated video card would be my guess. Check the temps on it.
