Does this sound like a GPU,CPU or RAM issue

I play sims 3 alot and it performs perfectly on my GTX 260 but for some reason it randomly just closes and goes to the desktop every few hours.
I have an i7 920 OC'd to 3.5GHz and 6GB corsair dominator @ 1450Mhz the GPU is at factory settings.
What could be causing the instant closure and just going to the desktop?

  1. Getting any error messages?
    Tried updating to the latest drivers?
    Sims 3 running on the latest patch?
    Anything of interest in event viewer?
    Any programs of interest running in the background?
  2. I have to ask: Legal version of the game?
  3. legal version with No-CD patch although it did it yesterday without the patch running off CD
  4. Does the error occur with any other games/programs? (I'd hate to think you put an i7 rig together just to play The Sims...)
  5. I have several games like settlers 7, cities xl and it has worked fine for all those. I sometimes MSN freezes though and takes about 1 min to start working again.

    FYI I've got an i7 rig because I do lots of milti media work using complex software.
