You might be able to use the Key you got with Ultimate x64 if you can get a copy of it, if you have not activated this key you just got 5 hours ago. Do some searching !

What is your PSU rated at... after searching your problem on google, it seems other users with your graphic card have had this problem, and solved it by using a bigger PSU... seems that the Nvidia Geforce 9500GT pulls a lot of power and could be responsible for the freeze ... just a random thought...
