    I would run a memory tester
    http://www.memtest.org/

    Download the prebuilt ISO, burn it to CD as an Image, boot from that CD and run the memory test for a couple of hours or overnight to stress test the memory.

    Post the mobo full model number, and the make and model of parts used to build the PC so others can help.
