I recently upgraded my old video card for a better one, a new GF FX6800.
I can play kotor fine for about 10 minutes when my entire pc crashes and restarts.

hmm, out of curiousity, how stable is your computer since you installed the video card?? does your computer crash and restart frequently, or is it just a problem when you try to run the game (or any other game)???

My pc is very stable
Kotor is the only game that crashes. I can play newer or even older games with no problems. Games like Morrowind, Doom III or age of empires 2 run without problems.

okay, just checking. sometimes people will run out and get a new card without considering the load on the power supply, but that doesn't seem to be your problem.

well, this doesn't sound like a hardware problem, but i am going to go on a hunch here. do you notice any kind of artifacts on screen or just generally wierd graphics issues during the brief 10min of gameplay??

Nope.

Unless I'm reading your specs wrong, you appear to have a swapfile/pagefile of 0. Perhaps you could increase it: Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Advanced Tab->Performance Settings->Advanced Tab->Change Button. Then set it to roughly 75% of the maximum that's listed on the screen, I had this problem with NWN, and increasing my pagefile fixed it for the most part.

Also, you got a video card satus warning, I'm not sure what that means, but it's a warning none the less.
