i would like to add that from my experiences, blue screens, usually result form memory problems (RAM). So you might want to check on that also. Generally, well in my cases, you get the computer to restart, or shut down due to overheating. The BIOS automatically does this to prevent damage to components.
But hey, I'm having computer problems too... think I'm gonna put 200 bucks into my machine to get it up and running again, and fully operatable... (Hint: check out COMPUSA for fans, 20% off last I checked for going out of business)

List your temps and voltages
Posted 05 January 2008 - 05:13 AM
2GB (2x1gb) PC-3200 DDR 184pin RAM
ASUS A8V-VM SE motherboard
BFG 8600 GTS GDDR3 gfx card
1TB (2x500gb) SATA HDD 16MB buffer
here is what I found on the BIOS:
CPU temp: 30.5C/86.5F
CPU fan speed: 1500RPM
VCORE V: 1.400V

Look around in bios and see what your ram voltage could be called vdimm, this should be around 2.6V if its higher it could be causing your ram to overheat.
Could you give us a link to the ram and psu?

Set it to 2.6 instead of auto and see if the ram still gets hot.
Before making changes in bios know how to clear the cmos in case you make a mistake!
This I can tell you, both the ram and the psu are not very good indicated by the lack of specs, you really should be using better parts especially in a gaming computer
