Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
Have you tested other games too ?
Also does it give you any errors when it crashes ?
Make sure you have the latest VGA driver installed too

What are the CPU and GPU temperatures in idle mode and after 10 minutes while playing crysis?

Try to run prime95 with only one stick of RAM at different slots (if you have 2 sticks of 2GB than you have 8 combinations).

Are you overclocking anything?

Did you change any settings in the BIOS?

i think ive figured it out i checked my vcore on cpu-z and it was 1.29 on stock settings aswel so that sounds way to high so i changed it to 1.2 and ran prime95 for nearly 4hrs then it done it again so just a bit more fiddling and it should be fine wat do you think
