I just installed all the parts < specs below ..<br />
Recently it's been freezing FREQUENTLY , but at no particular time ..<br />
could be during startup, surfing the net, .. anything ..<br />
<br />
I have a feeling it could be graphics , mainly because i have it setup across my computer table , i don't know whats wrong ... any suggestions?

Uhh it looks like your PSU is dieing, and i wound risk running a conroe on anything less the a 550W PSU... dont skinp on the PSU because if you get a cheap one, your system will not be stable, it wont OC well, it wont run games on high because the power it needs to do so will not be avalible.<br />

Sorry for the bad grammar, but it seems i was able to fix the problem.<br />
Because the system is layed out across my desktop , i guess the GFX card might have not been in properly, i kinda pushed it down and centered it -- and i havn't had it freeze yet + i reset settings to default .<br />
<br />
My PSU will hold me over, it's quite powerful and is currently only needing between 100-200 Wx10 to power the system ..

However what MystikX described is a symptom of a dying PSU nonetheless.
