My system specs are in my profile...

I think the problem is my Asus M4a78t-E AM3 AMD 790GX mobo. (I'm running Win 7 x32) I can be doing random things, or sometimes nothing at all, then my screen will go pixelated (not quite BSOD, but damned close), then my system will reboot itself. I ran a WhoCrashed, and got this:

As I mentioned earlier, this crash literally happens randomly. I can run CPU/GPU intensive games for 5-6 hours with no problem, then the next day I'll crash within a half hour, just browsing some forums. Any help would be great.
