Hey guys I just built a new computer and it keep freezing for like 10-15 seconds at a time. Also, it will crash firefox and starcraft 2 but only sometimes. Starcraft 2 will also randomly tell me that its installation is corrupted, but the I restart my computer and it boots up fine!

i have used memtest and everything checks out fine, so I can't figure out the problem. i have also re installed windows and that didn't work either. Please help!

This is my system:
windows 7 64 bit

Could be something with your drivers, have you tried nVidia's latest from their site?

Yeah I tried downloading all of the newest drivers, but that didn't help. I'm really confused about this one, but its starting to seem like a hardware issue maybe. I just don't know what it would be. Thanks for the response though!
