We need your system specs, network setup, and OS (I assume it isnt Linux)

Your killing me Joel

OK if it is heat you can download cpu-z, and gpu-z to keep an eye on the temps.

I suspect it isnt.

You have the bare minimum ram for 64 bit and your video card used some of it for itself.

I would think the actual problem is a driver, or PSU issue.

Is the air circulation good?

Clean the dust inside the CPU and its fan. Check if the heatsinks are all working correctly.

Joel we are here to help but you are the one sitting in front of it. We can tell you how to do anything you dont know but you do have to take some responsibility. Its the only way to learn and the only way we can help


Do you know how to google? If so google cpu-z and gpu-z and download and install them.

Let us know if you need assistance
