If you post (zip+attach) the dump maybe someone could check it out and give you an accurate reason as to why it's rebooting on you.
Myself, I don't know which end is up on those files.

A couple ideas though...
1) Power supply. What's the wattage and the rating on the +12v rail?
2) Drivers (both motherboard and video drivers). Make sure you have the latest of both.
3) Heat. But that usually just gives you artifacts and/or causes the card to downclock.

What version of Windows are you running?
