    your PSU could be the crashing, not enough ram for the loading times maybe.

    To add to Clunk's suggestions, what voltage are you feeding your CPU?

    Could your CPU be overheating? You can check this in BIOS immediately after a crash or with speedfan

    i dont think my CPU's overheating...it might be though...i have no idea what voltage im feeding it.

    but i do have a crap PSU so that could be causing it

    RAM's fine...on my other machine its 1GB, and that runs it fine.

    is it more than likely the PSU?

    I think you've found your answer.

    It dumbfounds me when people power their PCs costing hundreds of £££ with an elcheapo PSU.
