For example if you cpu and gpu happen to fully load at the same time 500w might become insufficient
I play a game called darkfall online, with even most settings on low im getting 40-50fps and a 60-70% load on the card, i was running it yesterday with the cards fan on 100% set manually to keep the card as cool as possible, the card was running at 31C and my cpu was at 62% load at a temp of 37C, i really dont see why it would work at one time, and not at another.
Todays Crashing was happening as-soon as the computer loads up and its still on the desktop screen.

There is your problem. If you have a bad 500w PSU, it could be capable of only producing a fraction of that 500w reliably. Your PSU could be struggling to power your card, failing at different times. The 4650 draws less power, and operated more reliably.

I obviously can't say 100% that this is the issue, but I would invest in a quality PSU with proper ratings ASAP. If it goes, and is of a crappy design, it could take your entire system with it.

What is the make/model, as someone may be able to tell you what type of unit it is, and if it is indeed a lie.

I was thinking that too but if it is the PSU why would he get a blue screen?

There is a possibility that a poorly made PSU could cause instability with the system, or even be damaging components which are causing the problem. Or it could be a driver issue, but the PSU in this case is suspect if it is a crappy no name unit, and even if it WASN'T the problem I would recommend replacing it (if we can determine which one it is in the first place).

Are you cleaning all your drivers between installs?

First of all, how does one Completly clean the drivers between installs? secondly the Psu, This is what it reads : Atx switching power supply, Version 2.03, 500w, Max current : 32A | 47A | 22A | 0.5A | 1.0A | 2.5A | (cost me $5, The old 700W psu i had didnt survive the Trip from england to canada and was broken and after spending all my money on building my computer over a year ago this is all i could afford and only now am i able to upgrade this piece of junk)

I am planning on purchasing a new power supply tomorow, unfortunatly all im really good at is putting the componants in and knowing what does what. (even though i really want to overclock my Cpu/ram when i get this new Psu tomorow)

these are the PSu's i can afford and were thinking of purchasing to help this issue, what one would everyone choose?
