First thing to do...disable Automatic Restarts When Windows Crashes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/ .

Next time the system crashes, note and write down the error message onscreen.

My basic reference for STOP error data: http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm.

You might also check the system for possible overheating, games force the system to work harder than normal, IMO.
