First off you'll need to tell us the complete and full specs of the current system-including the powersupply and monitor resolution.
Quite often random crashes, particulary under load are caused by clogged cooling, when was the last time you cleaned out the heatsinks and fans?
To check the temperatures: Realtemp or Speedfan for the CPU and GPU-Z for the graphics card.
