could be your card is overheating with those games. check your temps.

Could be definately an overheating issue... counterstrike and GTA/SA arent as graphicly demanding as DOOM3/FEAR/NFS-Carbon. Just curious, did you have any of the same problems when you had WinXP installed? Some people do have a driver problem when it comes to using WinVista, its still a somewhat buggy OS.
