Default Computer reboots on game startup

Hi there. I just got a Dell 5400 with 512 MB memory. I installed an XFX GeForce 6200 with "TurboCache" 256MB (the kind that draws from your system memory), and upgraded to the latest SMP LInux kernel (1-11.1 if my memory serves). I installed the 1714 NVidia Linux drivers and after a while got X running. I installed Cedega 4.3 with Point2Play 1.3.3 and the graphics acceleration tests run fine. However, when I go into a game (specifically World of Warcraft), the computer will reboot without any warning. There's no option for disabling the onboard graphics card in my BIOS (but I have it set to "Auto", which should disable it anyway because I have the GeForce in there).

Any help would be appreciated.
