The most LIKELY cause is your power supply. Sure, it could be the CPU, the motherboard, the RAM, and a few other things. However a CPU rarely fails unless it severely overheated, RAM does fail, but there are usually quite a few warning signs (system crashes, blue screens, etc.) and a motherboard failure could cause your symptoms.

If you choose to try another CPU, be sure to install it carefully, with the heat sink oriented properly, and that you apply heat sink compound. CLICK HERE for AMD's socket A installation guide (you'll need Adobe Acrobat).
