Ati 9800 pro restarting problem

    Hi guys,
    I have a P IV 3.2, original Intel 865GBF mobo, and 256 RAM, and an ATI
    9800 Pro 128mb. My problem is that my pc will boot fine upto the
    desktop, but when I try to play any game (Unreal Tournament 2003,
    Madden 2003, NBA Live 2003, and Emperor Rise of the middle kingdom,
    and Il-2) my computer restarts. Now, I read that I needed a bigger
    power supply, so I got a 400W power supply.

    Also, I have upgraded the ATI drivers from the site to the latest
    ones, and changed OS from XP to 2000. All to no avail. My system will
    run fine up to the desktop, but if I start a game, it will restart.

    If anybody can help me out, I would really appreciate it.

    sounds to me like it could be a heat problem.
