    My computer will freeze at random times when playing games like Halo 2, STALKER, Crysis, Far Cry 2, and Caesar 4. I don't think it is a heat problem since it will happen at random times and my dad's comp, which also has the same specs doesn't freeze. So I was wondering if any of you could help me figure out what is wrong. Specs are right here.

    CPU: Core 2 Extreme QX6850
    GPU: eVGA Nvidia 8800GT 512 Mb
    RAM: 2Gb Corsair 800MHz
    HDD: 500Gb SATA
    OS: Vista Premium 32-bit

    ...and the make, model, and size of the power supply? (The most neglected, but most probable cause of your problem.)
