Logg in and i can play for a random amount of time before my computer crash (and i mean really crash i need to power off my computer since i cant reach back to Xwindows in anyway, my monitor even goes into sleep mode). I've tried the drivers from both ubuntu and the beta from nvidia. Running wine 1.0-rc1.

Wine should not be able to crash system - it's a user application. You might have problems with driver an/or hardware.
Driver leaking memory and overheating video card is the most likely cause of such crashes.
