Ok, slow down, we can fix it, just:

1) Fill in your system specs.
2) Reset everything except your ram to default in bios.
3) Manually enter the ram voltages and timings into bios that your ram has on its package.
4) See if it's still crashing and report back.

Edit: In between steps 3 and 4, make sure you have installed the latest drivers for your motherboard from the website (not CD) and ditto for your graphics card.

Spending a thousand dollars does not mean that your CPU is going to be magically stable even after overclocking. Throwing money at it is not going to make it perform any better, lol. It seems like you have a lot to learn, so back your overclock down to stock, and take some learning opportunity from here on OCN.
