Perhaps it's overheating? Hard to know without more info. Please list the brands and (especially) model numbers of ALL parts of the computer, including CPU, memory, case, any fans, CPU cooler, graphics card, etc.
I agree. I would definately DL memtest and make a bootable cd so you can test all the ram before the OS and apps are loaded into it. Is it possible for you to swap out your vid card and see if you get the same problems with a different video card. But the very first thing I would do is remove all your cards and ram and reseat everything so that you know it is all in properly. Too many time a new build is befouled by a ram or vid card not quite pushed in tight enough. The problem I had on this build was when I put the screw in that holds the vid card secure. When tightened it made the rear of the vid card lift about an eight inch and was enough to cause some of the same things you are describing.
well i got memtest from a site off google and i put it in and it got up to aroudn 66% and my pc restarted and then got to bios and then restarted again and then bios was solid black and there was blue lines spoted at the top of the screen looks like broken up lines
i don't even think my pc will stay running long enof to run prime
i bleave something is not working right last crash was getting 69 C and right wne it hit 70 C it cut the game off and went to desktop and said a client failed
and the fan was runnig around 3000rpm to 3500
i don;t understand whyy it would jsut all of a sudden start overheathing tho
its a fresh system too 2 weeks old only things thats not fresh about it is the ram and graphics card both about a year old but worked Great in the desktop b4 this one and worked Great till this sudden crash i don;t know whats going on
Well if you are not overclocking,then I would say that memory is your problem.This is not uncommon for ram to be bad and although no one likes to hear that they need to upgrade to better ram,sometimes it's for the best.My opinion is bad memory.Goodluck.

This thread got me thinking. I just got my new X850XT in today, my first double-slot card. The PCI-E slot does seem to be a bit out of line, and the screw pulls it a bit. Will it be ok if I just put in the bottom screw on the two-slot bracket?
I tend to get stuttering when I have textures set high, with this and my previous X800XL. Could this misalignment cause that? Thanks.
50 degrees celcius is a bit high for an idle temp on that CPU.... you could try running a CPU intensive program, and checking your temps at load. That CPU SHOULD be idling around mid to high 30's to very low 40's. With that being said, 50c isn't to high, just that you say that is idle gets me thinking it might be an issue. Also, make sure the front case fans blow in while the back fans exhaust the air. You don't have any thermistors installed under the heatsink do you? I know it's kind of a dumb question, but I have seen someone do it before. OP, thermistor is a heat measuring device.
If you think your pci-e slot is out of line with your case then bend your case to make it inline with the pci-e slot. otherwise, take out the motherboard and put the card in and then remount the motherboard.
A SLIGHTLY bent bracket is no big deal, you should not use any force to make it fit, but with my 6800U with a Antec 1050, the screws were not perfectly in line. I could still screw them and have a slightly bent bracket, no big deal
