Blue Screens are killing me!

I JUST got my new pc put together and I was extra careful to set up BIOS properly and everything was golden! I had been playing SupCom FA for about 4 days all maxed out and was loving life. Then I decided to try the Crysis game that came with the Vid Card. Everything was great for about a day. Then all of a sudden BLUE SCREEN, and the PC hasnt been the same sense. I have done no overclocking of anything. I have deleted Crysis. Infact now, I have deleted everything except the core OS. And even that I have started from scratch three times.

Could I have faulty Hard Ware? How the Flip do I check? I ran the Memory Test provided in the Vista recovery options and the first time I ran it, it said there were hardware problems...but the test results never showed up when the pc restarted after the test was finished! And then it just crashed again.

SO, now I am able to get online and that is about it. If I play a game or open anyother program it dies.

Thanks for reading and your thoughts.

If you wanted to see what my pc is Ill provide a link to the build

First thing I'd do is get the BSOD error code. That can almost tell you exactly what your problem could be.

Second, I'd check the RAM seating, voltages, and clock speeds. (Your MB could have just defaulted the RAM voltage lower than what is required)

Third, update / reinstall drivers. (Use DriverCleaner Pro)

There's a possibilities because of Punkbuster. Crysis install this as default.

Okay I can do those things. Ill post the error codes when I am finished getting them.

Second, how can I find what the "normal" voltages, and clock speeds are suppose to be?

Yes, I believe I have punkbuster installed...How would this create a blue screen and how can I fix it?
