Crashing/Freezing ingame

I've built this PC 3 days ago and I keep having issues when I'm trying to play games. Games will either freeze or crash, sometimes I have graphical issues, the display driver would crash, sometimes the PC would even restart, i don't know what to do... First I had this issues on Windows 8, so I changed to Windows 7 and i keep having them. I didn't overclock anything by the way.

PC Specs:

ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer
AMD FX8350 @ stock (4GHz)
be Quiet Dark Rock 3 Cooler
Sapphire R9 280X Tri-X OC @ stock (1100MHz)
G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 1600Mhz
Corsair CX600 PSU

  1. Are all the drivers from AsRocks website installed?
    Test the ram overnight - there should be no errors.
    Run a surface scan on the HDD.
  2. what kind of games you play ? and what's your monitor :) ?
  3. I forgot to say that have an Mushkin Chronos 120GB SSD and Seagate Barracuda 1TB

    @ popatim - I've only installed Audio drivers and USB 3.0 drivers, other stuff was useless
    @ Azizinium - At the moment I only have BF3 Premium on Origin installed and the monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster P2370HD
