Recent PC Build. CRASH...CRASH...CRASH

Okay guys, I'd love some help with some issues I am having. About two months ago I decided to start putting together parts to build my own rig(first time builder here) After scrounging around for a bit and getting the deals I liked I decided to put it all together and make my PC. Since then, Ive been having a lot of issues with errors and PC crashing. Overall I am just looking to resolve these issues and walk away with a bit of knowledge on how to troubleshoot my PC problems.

1st: I am constantly receiving Java crashes(Pandora, Grooveshark, Youtube) periodically throughout the day.
2nd: My graphics will freeze up momentarily when viewing sites such as Youtube, Twitch, and occasionally when playing a game(Starcraft 2)
3rd: Entire system crashes. I will get blue screens 3-4 times a day(within a 4 hour period) Blue screens range from "Bad Pool Header" errors, to "memory Management" error.

Please help guys, I am tired of these PC issues and if anyone could help walk me through the troubleshooting process, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Check your RAM. Use one stick and see if you are getting isses, if you do, change it for the other stick of ram.
Have you installed your motherboard drivers that came with the motherboard?

I have installed the motherboard drivers. I'm a bit confused by the ram process... you want me to physically remove one stick and see if that is giving me issues, then if it does replace with other?

Yes, just be sure to be using one (1) stick of ram only.
Replace with the second one if the first one causes anything.

If the issue persists with both, do a clean reinstall.

Thank you Erick,

So I went ahead and removed one stick of ram and will see if it persist to crash. When I did remove this one stick and powered up my computer, windows informed me that either memory or cpu has been removed/modified and asked if I want to configure in my bios or proceed to default. I chose the latter selection.

Will keep you updated. Thank you.

Take a look at your motherboard manual and make sure you are installing the ram in the proper slots. Do it only like the manual instructs.

Hmm, the instructions are pretty technical... but from what I've gathered it seems to be saying that i need to stagger the ram. I did originally do this and problems occurred.

Motherboards are different. That is why you must use their instruction manual. One should of come with the motherboard or you can find it online and download it.
