It should handle it fine!
Is the game out now?
I thought it didn't come out till next month!
Are you playing the beta events?
have you gone online to the site to see if there are some patches for your particlar set-up?
Ok I had to get that part out of the way........
look in the event viewer and see what it says about any issues at all. control panel>admin tools > event viewer and when it pops up....in the left window click on each of the 3 items and scroll down in the right window to view info at about the time all this happened. post back what ever errors it lists.

cooling probably. it sounds like what happens when cooling is bad, although it may be something else.

you can try "speed fan" but be careful with it. i wouldn't suggest to making any changes just use it to compare between the two.
You need to be aware that sometimes a system will report wrong readings because of just bad sensors.
If it is heat related the safest thing for checking is really LOW TECH....just open the side panel and blow cool air into the compartment using a regular house fan. Then try the game again and see if it acts up. If so then more than likely it is not heat related.

Guild Wars...isn't that a RPG? I've heard that it's really good...some have even said that it's better than World of Warcraft...o.O

Sounds like your computer is overloading like mine. Whenever I play tribes starsiege RPG my computer kicks me off the game and a window comes up that says its low in virtual memory.
