I think this happened to me before, turned out my GPU had worn out but fortunately it was in warranty.

screen turned off but computer was still on then I had to hold power button to turn it off.

Sounds to me like a BSOD/GPU problem. Especially if the fan just went nuts, it probably defaulted to 100% speed as a precaution or something.

Check out "who crashed" to see what the BSOD was all about (if there was one).

If my GPU goes out what happens? Would it just not play video games or just not show anything? Right now I have a 560 ti so I was gonna upgrade soon anyways.

Did you even check to see if it was a BSOD or are you just gonna assume your card is dead/dying and chuck it?

The biggest possibility is that your computer overheated or just couldn't handle the game anymore and FPS killed you which then reverts back to your computer overheating so...

Whenever this happens, let your computer rest for about 5-15 minutes. I recommend 12 minutes but if you want to be safe, longer. Or if you're impatient, the minimum is 5. Also feel the heat of the computer, if it's hot then well... It's hot then.

The best thing you could prevent this from happening again is probably to not play the game for a very long period of time. Higher FPS increases the chance of heating up the fans which make it do more work thus creating an endless loop but the fan will soon stop being effective.
