I purchased some parts in fry's, and i build my first PC.
here is my build:
Motherboard: A880GZ biostar
FX 6200
PSU: TR2 600W Thermaltake
Videocard: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 ti PNY
8 Gb 1333 single Module Ram Corsair
2 fans of 120 mm Coolermaster
no dvd.
windows ultimate 7 64x bits SP1, full update.

Inicially when i had no drivers, i got this error BCCode: 124.
i read at forums and i discover that error is from drivers compatibility.
after updating my BIOS to 4.6.4 version, installed the latest drivers of Nvidia, drivers of this page i didnt got a bluescreen again, but it still restart after 1 or 2 hours, sometimes after 20 min of use, is totally random.

installed codecs, i did a memtest with the rams (0 errors), used sfc /scannow to check my HD. installed AIDA64 to check temperature, my procesor is arround 25-30 Centigrade or 88 F.

i dont know what could i do.

when i run on safe mode i dont get any problem

I suspect the NVidia driver. Try uninstalling it and reinstalling an older driver version.

Download hardware monitor and watch your power supply output. That power supply's not a real good one and I bet under load one of the legs are dropping below atx voltage spec.

i downgrade my driver version of Nvdia from 314.22 to 306.97.
i did test with OCCT stress program following the advice of a guy in the Nvidia forum, here is a rar with all the images of the test. no issues ( well, my computer restart randomly in middle of GPU test) but i did the test for 10 min again and nothing happend.
i also check temperatures with CPU-Z

Output voltaje:
this image is before started the test

this is after 20 min of stress the CPU

my problem of random restard after 1 or 2 hours still persist. im looking for more option right now.

you sure is PSU problem?, i think 600 watts was enough for a gtx 650 ti (105 watts) and my fx 6200(125 watts), even if his efficience is 72% (432 watts) should be enough right? or i did something wrong installing it, because my motherboard only use half of the EPS conector.
what should i do?

You did nothing wrong if it under 30 days return the ps for a refund by a cosair or seasonic unit or a good name brand unit. The power supply if you look at the voltages with any tool and your mb bios envorment tools will show you the power supply it beards close to the atx spec when unloaded.

well, i switched my PSU for a better one Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN80% plus Certified, 88% energy efficience. also switched my motherboard for another one of the same model. i tried run with no video card, problem still persist, running with windows 7 pro,enterprise,home,ultimate. even linux and keep restarting this mean cant be software issues, PSU, Motherboard or videocard.
only left hard disk, procesator or Ram.
another suspicius thing is the biostar websites say's that the a880gz have a Max. Supports up to 16GB Memory. but in the instructive say that support 4gb for DIMM, 4x2 gb = 8 gb ram. cant understand it.

someone that can solve this clue :/ ?

the solution was my memory ram, aparently it doenst support the branded 1333 mhz. i upgrade my motherboard BIos and downgrade the speed of the memory at 1000 mhz.
