Thanks Carlitos714. I only have the installed GPU. If I bought a better one now, what wuld you suggest? I just ran the test again. It is actually 3DMark 11 test, I got a score they said is similar to other equally built systems, 4208, with a combined FPS of 19.58. Then I ran the performance test in the Company of Heroes game (love this game!) and got 58-61 FPS, so that is what I recalled when I first built the system. I will change the RAM timings, but thought you should know that I was working with "Sean" at Mushkin with this problem. I learned that I never (at time of build) set the RAM timings in the BIOS. The system (MOBO) had them set to 9-9-9-24 and that was when it was crashing. Sean explained how to set them in the BIOS and that actually improved things slightly. I am open to trying things.

If I have to buy new hardware what 1366 processor (under $300.00) do you suggest. Also, What ASUS MOBO would be similar, but improved, over my current P^X58D Premium? I just want to start thinking about replacements. I know the ASUS BIOS layout well and want to stick with them for the MOBO, unless another company has something much better out currently. Thanks for your time.
