Your problem could also be related to your PSU, the Nvidia Geforce GTS 250 requires a PSU which supplies a minimum of 450W, this can cause BSODs

Yes, thanks for the answer , the problem could be PSU related.
But i think if i buy a better PSU , my motherboard doesn't support it,so
would it better to first get a new motherboard and after a new PSU?

Get a new motherboard, one RAM slot may be damaged
Upgrading the current PSU can cause compatibility problems with your motherboard
