Sounds to me like you have answered your own question. If you replace the card and the problem goes away..then common sense will tell you that the problem is in the card that was removed.
Of course it could also be the driver, but you have said that you already tried reinstalling the driver.
When the computer restarts does it bluescreen with a STOP 0x error?
If it doesnt right click on My Computer-click Properties click the advanced tab click the settings button under startup and recovery and uncheck the box in System Fauilure that says auto restart.
Now does the PC bluescreen when it restarts and if so, what is the error?
When you put the new card in the pc, are they using the same bus type? AGP/PCI/PCIe ?
Also, have you tried reinstalling DirectX?
Try running DX diagnostics as well to see if there is a problem there.
Click Start-Run-and type dxdiag <enter>
click on the display tab and run the two tests there, as it sounds like the problem starts when initializing 3d video.
another reason could be (sorry for my bad english):
i had this problem with an xfx geforce ti 4200
the following happened only with a few of games:
after playing a while the screen gets black and system is frozen.
the energy for the (agp) graphics card only came over the agp bus but this wasn't enough. the graphics card should have had an additional power supply cable from the normal power supply.
i sold this card to a friend without saying this problem. in my humble opinion: i think all xfx graphics cards have a layout mistake. they are cheap and not bad but i think even nothing for an "often player"
glad to hear that it is working. glad i could help and be of assistance
