Ahh, i see. So i am not the only one. Something i did notice about my condition is that my computer will randomly crash when i have a Live CD in it. So I checked the power supply, to see if that was the problem. Some of the comments on newegg say that it randomly turns off, as was happening with me. Currently I am RMAing (if thats a word) My power supply. (the model for any who are curious its Rosewill: RX950-D-B)

Yes it is a weird problem.

Before I had the retail copy of WIN 7 64 bit, I was trying the 32 bit RC download. It used to crash almost every day.

However this 64 bit version, has only crashed twice. Once 4 days ago, and today.

It made me think its a software issue, but it could also be a hardware fault. Thing is it can get expensive. If its not the power suppy, maybe the processor, GFX card etc.

Ive tested my memory with Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic and it checks out fine. Also the system runs all the modern games without locking up.

I thought it might be to do with power management/AMD cool and quiet, but the problem is occuring in different hardware systems.

Oh well, onwards and upwards

Well, this is rather embarrassing. Before i sent out my power supply, i remembered my Hardware/Software Troubleshooting teacher tell me that dust can sometimes short out a system... I decided to blow out my computer, and it works perfectly. I want to thank everyone for their help, and hopefully this helps some other people.
