I'm getting blue screens (sometimes), while I play(only), and my PC reboots(always) after a strange sound lasting 2-4 seconds. The only thing I could see from the Blue screens was dumping physical memory to disc or something like that. I read Uncorrectable hardware error on the last screen. Something like that http://www.faultwire.com/solutions_bsod/The_system_enco...
My PC is:
GB EP35-DS3R, Q6600 at stock, 2X2GB 800mhz at stock, GB 4850 512mb at stock, 500GB Seagate, 550W Chieftec. The video card's temperature is ok - 75 degrees Celsius max. The hottest q6600 core is 56 degrees Celsius. The motherboard temperature is 42 degrees celsius. I ran memtest for 1 hour - no errors. I have the latest video drivers and I'm almost sure that there is no problem with the video card, because there is nothing about video in the blue screens. So i think my PSU is the problem.

p.s. Sorry for my English, it's my second language.
Does it crash on all games ?.... Did you test your memory for errors ?....
Try this... start/right click my computer/properties/advanced settings/advanced/performance/virtual memory/change........there you will see how much virtual memory is allocated. Make changes as needed. Reboot.
What games are you playing and at what settings and at what resolution ? This information could be very important.
You know, I actually had the same problem while playing Crysis. My system would reboot after 5 mins of gameplay. WHat I did is: take out my ram and reinstall it again. It actually worked . Havent had the "blue screen of death" anymore. So try that beffore you go off spending $100+ on a new RAM. Might save you $$$> But if it continues go ahead and buy a new ram. And if it happens again, then running a system stress test might be an option. Another would just be reinstalling your OS. But ofcourse that will take time and effort. Its all up to you zhivkot.
When I said "test it, replace it, get back to gaming" I meant actually test it lol. Download Memtest (or whatever memory testing tool you wish) and run that with your RAM. If it passes, your ram is ok.
You should also run prime95 to see how stable your system is under load.
Finally, check for new drivers (motherboard & video) to ensure you are getting the most out of your equipment.
