Try each stick of RAM indiviually first--->then pull the video card second--->

It may be anyone of your components failing, or could just be an instable OC

---> represent: reboot and see if problem persists

I have a motherboard that does this randomly, although not that bad. I always had to power cycle it a dozen time and/or reset the BIOS, but it didn't happen daily.

First thing I notice though is you have 1600MHz ram. Do you have it set to that speed? The Phenom II memory controller is only 1333 so if you set it to 1600 you ARE overclocking the memory controller. most can handle 1600MHz with a CPU-NB voltage bump. Although mine isn't stable above 1580
