I'd suggest opening up the case and checking the fans to see if they're running - especially the fans on the video card and the CPU. 105 isn't all that hot for a CPU (if that's what the display is showing). Do you know where the temperature sensor for the display is located? I notice that there's a nice cooler on the CPU - are you sure that there is thermal grease between it and the CPU?
Try playing the games (and using the TV tuner) in Safe Mode - if it doesn't seize up there, then it's almost definitely a driver issue. If it does, then it's most likely a hardware issue.
Do you have any way of monitoring the temps on the video card?
