BSOD and freeze attacks

I often get a blue screen, computer freezes, or computer just suddenly restarts.
most of time after pc restarts after the above it beeps 1 short and 1 long beep for up to 10 minutes at a time.
My pc often does 1 of the 3 running windows media player, youtube or any other videos on the net, and Perfect World International. My pc runs perfectly fine as long as I dont try to load vids, games, or music.
When i am persistant enough eventually my pc after SEVERAL BSOD and restarts and beeping runs perfectly fine untill I decide to shutdown, but problem returns upon restarting and trying to do something.

Is this a newly built PC? If so double check that every add on card is firmly seated, RAM, CPU, etc...

remove your 9800gtx+ and run with your onboard gfx to see if this eliminates the crashes ?

yes it would be EMI or also known as RFI electromagnetic interference but however highly unusual from a single cable on a stable power supply ?
