Is it sudden reboots or real actual shutdowns?

In Windows2000 and xp you can disable the automatic reboot, not sure the exact path on xp, but probably the same as win2k:
control panel->system->advanced->startup and recovery->Automatic reboot

If you disable automatic reboot there you will most likely get bluescreen instead of sudden reboots.

Also make sure the AGP (video) card is properly seated, sometimes it can help to remove the card and put it back in. It helped for my brother and he was having the same problem...desktop worked but not games etc.

If that doesn't work I would suggest try to set your memory bus speed to 333MHz in your bios.

67 degrees Celsius?

I think the core can take up to 85 degrees C.

I think there is a formula the bios uses to calculate the core temp from the sensors but then again there are many factors that can mess this up. Wrong temp from sensors, bad sensors etc. If you think heat is a problem try running with your case open and see if it helps.
