Pentium 4 3.2 ghz (prescott core)
1 gig of corsair RAM
Abit VIA PT880 chipset
2 western digital hdd, one 160 gig, one 250 gig

Here's the problem: My computer just randomly stalls when i am either playing games, or when i run more than three larger applications at once, i know i have plenty of RAM, but not sure what else could be wrong. I have had my power supply tested, and it produces the correct volts, and also i have moved the RAM, and tested that with the norton system works. Well anyway, i re-installed windows on a second harddrive, still stalls, made sure my drivers are up to date, still stalls, made sure that my power supply works, still stalls. My mobo has been kinda ruled out, but who knows, i need advice. My cpu runs at an idle temperature of 165 degrees fahreinhiet, not sure exactly in celsius, i thnk its about 74 degrees celcius, but not sure, don't want to restart to check. Does anybody have any suggestions for this? If you need more information, just post a messege and i will telll you everything i can and hopefully i can settle this.
P.S. I talked to my computer tech teacher and he thinks it is my graphics card, but i also believe it could be my heatsink, its the stock heatsink.
