I put together a desktop last year and things have been working great. 2.4G Dual Core 2, 2Gig RAM, Fast video card. I was just playing Call of Duty 4 online and all of a sudden it went DEAD, D-E-A-D, DEAD. I thought the house lost power. I unplugged the power and turned off the switch, then I plugged it back in and turned the power on. The computer lights and fans inside flash on real quick then go off. Now it's not even doing that.
I will say that the computer was definitely warm/hot, but I've had it in the same conditions for almost a year now. (I did add the additional Gig of RAM last month). If you have any ideas PLLLEEEEEAAAASSSEEEE let me know. I have some important stuff on it that I can't get to now.
