Sorry to tell you but I don't think your video card is good enough to play this game. Yours is either the slowest or the second-slowest video card that NVidia makes today.

So? That has nothing to do with making his computer shut down.

Check your Windows Performance log and see if it gives a crash report.

Audiosurf will run on a netbook, besides he already said that he runs MW2 so it's probably not a performance issue.

Do what Saijin_Naib said and if it persists and you cant work out why first check the integrity of the game files through steam then if it still does it reinstall the game. Also try running the game without desktop composition if you have Vista or Win7.

Audiosurf relies A LOT on your CPU, while (I'm making an assumption here) MW2 uses your GPU more than your CPU.

I'd check if your CPU is getting too hot.
Also, make sure your audio drivers are up to date...

Assuming that the video driver is up-to-date, it can be a power supply issue, or a sound driver issue, or a network card driver problem. Just guessing.

If it doesn't reboot, just shuts down, the power supply is the number one suspect.

If you're using 3D accelerated audio, turn it off.

CPU/GPU power is not causing your shutdowns, although the heat they produce may be. Get SpeedFan and check your CPU and GPU temperatures at idle (not doing anything) and during game. (I don't use AMD processors anymore so I don't know of a more accurate temperature reader for you, sorry).

I've never had this happen in Audiosurf (Core 2 Duo P8400, GeForce G105M, 4gb RAM - all parts are less powerful than yours), but it has happened to me in StepMania (a DDR simulator).

Also, try updating your NVIDIA drivers - you might find the performance increases make your GPU more efficient and emit less heat, maybe.

Overclocking CPU, GPU or RAM ?
