Ok so it's been a few days now with no problems at all! I have been playing farcry 3 and other demanding games and tasks and not had any issues! I think it must have been the psu or maybe a combination of the psu and the things we've done! I will mark this thread as solved when you guys think I should! You have been great and i know who and where to seek help from in the future

Thank you

Dakka did you reset the bios back to the defaults... I hope you remember we had changed the settings while troubleshooting the graphics card..

Could you reset them back to the default and check again

Is the new drive a slave disk or... The master. Did you reinstall windows again on the new disk

It seems to be ok now! The hdd I put in was a 1 terabyte hdd that was totally full! I've deleted 90% of the things on there now though! I have ordered a new mobo, case and processor anyway so either way it will be sorted soon! They was for a new build but at least I will have more compatible parts to test things properly! I can't go taking my misses' or daughters pc's to bits to try as it would void they're warranties! If they don't fix the issue then it's my graphics card so I will leave this thread open until I have put it all together when it gets here and report back!

Do you have drives attached via IDE/PATA? There should be no slave/master relationship with SATA.

No, they are sata! I got the question mixed up with the boot order (stupid I know)!

Since I put the gpu in this new build there have been no issues guys! Apart from quite a long boot process! Event viewer shows an error everytime I boot! It hangs for about a minute after logging on before it starts but after that its all fast! I'm thinking that my mobo was bad on the problem pc, as I have not had a bsod on this one with the same ram and gpu in it!
