...Could be any number of things. Overheating video card would be my first guess. Bad power supply would be my second. Bad ram would be the third, followed by bad cpu.  Let's not forget the motherboard could be bad. 

Does your computer turn itself off after an hour of normal use? Will it stay on all day with normal non gaming  usage?

What are your system specs. Do you overclock?

Install a hardware monitor app like Cam, AfterBurner, or others and run it in the background while you're gaming, bounce back and forth between game and app to check your system temps just to rule that out as a possibility. If thermals isn't the problem there is other trouble shooting to attempt but this will be a good place to start.

Also, the more info we have on your machine the better we can help.
OS, Ram, MB, HD, CPU, CPU cooler, Have you done any overclocking, any other mods, recently installed apps/drivers/hardware, how long have you had this problem, etc.

After a crash, take a look at the Event Viewer upon restart to give you an idea about what is happening. As said above, it could be a ton of things. A bad PSU is the culprit in a lot of situations such as this however.
