Hi guys. It's my first build and I hope I've submitted in the correct part of the forum. I don't know if my problem is CPU, Motherboard, RAM, GPU, OS or something else! The system will POST however.
I'm having frequent 0x00000124 BSOD crashes when playing GTA4 and recently without the system under load. I don't wish to overclock my system and I'm currently running the RAM at 1333Mhz with BIOS settings at AUTO. Could anyone point me in the right direction to help get things stable? The motherboard isn't particularly user friendly.
Any help would be much appreciated as I'm a bit of a novice.

0x00000124 usually means there's a conflict between your video card and audio card drivers. Have you updated all your drivers? You may also isolate the cause by trying to play GTA IV without sound. If nothing happens, then you know it's your audio card, or at least its drivers, causing the problem.
