Check the GPU fan for proper function. Make sure it is clear of any dust and debris.

I was talking about the video card.

GPU is short for Graphics Processing Unit.

Have you tried altering your buffers or Windows swap file? Try enlarging your swap file as this often helps. When you are using a computer for gaming, information is needed fast and sometimes even computers get confused. This is why XBox's and PS3's are so popular as they are dedicated games machines.

Tried updating the Graphics drivers?

When the PC slows down, does the HDD light (red LED) on the front of the PC suddenly flash like mad?

I havent tried to alter the buffer size I dont even know how to do that..
But I have tried to update the graphics driver on the latest version but no luck..
And the HDD LED is not flashing when the pc is freezing...when working in windows is the same just the power light is on and thats all....when the hdd light is flashing the pc comes back again...
I have run Intel burn test yesterday on my pc on standard and maximum settings as well and the result was successful both time and the system is stable..
I have made a bootable usb to run memtest 86 again--no errors found
