The fact that it is freezing is because the power supply is going bad. Have the power supply tested at a local computer store, or use a power supply borrowed from a friend or another computer if it's available to save you the money on getting it tested.

As for Best Buy, the people in the 'Geek Squad' are complete and utter idiots. No matter the problem, they always say you should get a new computer, hence why the repair costs are ridiculously high. I mean they charge almost $200 to network two computers together, not including the price of hardware and cables. They are a joke and I would suggest that nobody go to them ever.
