Windows 7: Halp! Fresh Windows 7 install constantly freezing

Halp! Fresh Windows 7 install constantly freezing

Hey guys!

So, I've just re installed 7 Ultimate x64 on my desktop because my prior installation had been giving me grief.

My issue is that it is now intermittently freezing.

I assume the issue is related to drivers because I've tested my memory via memtest, and I ran DFT on my (brand new) HD.

My specs are as follows,

BFG GTX260 Core216
Intel Core2Quad q8400
8GB OCZ DDR2 PC6400 800Mhz
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM
TX850 Modular PSU

I've downloaded the latest drivers for my motherboard and video card from the respective manufacturers websites. (ASUS, Nvidia)

ASUS website only lists the chip set and audio driver for my board.

Any ideas? The issue is extremely intermittent. I can go 35 minutes without freezing sometimes, and sometimes its immediately after booting up.
