my brother just had this problem with his PNY 4200 ... (he could run 2d for a while, but in 3d it would crap out after 30 minutes tops ...

the fan wasn't spinning up to spec and it was making the card to hot ... he got 2 other PNY 4200's and the same thing kept happening, so he just got a VisionTek 4200 and that solved the problem ...

so you might consider switching brands (return it for a credit) or buy a $13 ORB ...

i'm 99% positive this is your problem. he had a more powerful system than yours and he only had a 300W PSU.
