I realise that many people are having the same problems, i.e. restarting of XP. However, I have reformatted my computer around 4 times in the last 2 months and I the problem persists.

Right, the problem is whenever I play high cpu requiring games my computer will restart. This includes:

Lineage II
Diablo II
StarWars: Knights of the Old Republic (1 and 2)
City of Heros

A couple of people I've spoken to suggested hardware problems. I don't think it is the GFX card, simply because it has a chunky heat sink and 2 fans. The RAM breakdown is 1x512 and 2x256.

Occasionally get some win32 program crashes.. related?

Attached dxdiag.

BSOD info:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

***STOP: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0X80565A80, 0XF152CC94 [have also seen 0XF2331C94 and 0XF27F4C94.. some more too but haven't noted them down. The other numbers/letters are the same all the time] , 0X00000000)
