Not at all,

You forget that when he launches a game it'll move over to 3D processing which will access different files and parts of the drivers that could have a conflict which, funny this, can be related to conflicts with ATI drivers.

yea Heat sensors

what brand?

it might be temps that will auto shut off.
(we need to know specs like what case u have and number of fans.)
bad cases will build up heat and at over 100c(around there) it'll auto shut off to protect itself.
When I had a POS PSU I had some shutdowns while gaming too..

In short, until we get more information we can't pin point the issue.

Comps
This is very possible as well.

Until OP gets back: What exactly is your system? what case, pics of the inside. did you have ATI before? Brand of PSU and the pic is too see if you have good airflow. Filling system specs always helps

I just had his exact issue, to a degree.

My computer would shut off whenever it had to do something graphically intensive. I formatted the computer, and sent the video card back for warranty, neither of which helped. I RMA'd the power supply and got a BNIB one in return, which fixed the issue completely. The power supply seems like the likely culprit in this case.

That's your experience. I've never had those symptoms caused by a driver issue. Different symptoms.

@OP: Did the screen just go black and the computer restarted shortly after? Or was there any sort of bluescreen or graphical glitches?

I bet it's ventilation.

If it was the power supply, then it's probably a cheap brand and you have other OC'd hardware running in there as well bringing the 650w to it's peak causing the shutdown.

It could also be a faulty video card

For the record, I used to have ATI and nV drivers both on my computer for months, as I was doing a lot of benching of different setups, trying to decide which I wanted to keep, and I just wanted to swap cards in and out w/o having to mess with driver installs and such. It never caused me any problems whatsoever.

Driver conflicts were an issue sometimes w/XP, but Windows 7 will let you have drivers from both companies on your machine no problem. Of course, we don't even know what OS the OP is running, so ...

This problem is almost certainly either a cheap/degraded PSU, or temperature sensors on the mobo that are causing the machine to shut off. The other possibility is a short circuit somewhere in the system that doesn't ground out until a lot of power is put through it.

OP: Please put your system info in at UserCP > Add system if you want to get the best help on Overclock.net

Updated my build in my sig also my last card was a GTX 260 core 216 that I'm now trying to get rid of lol. It also happened with that card aswell.

Swap out your power supply for something better. That is almost certainly your problem. I would go with a nice Corsair/Antec/Seasonic unit. 650W would do it, but I'd go with 750-850W unit to allow for expansion in the future.
