Maximus IV Extreme Question! guys i just bought a new few parts

Maximus IV Extreme
2nd generetion I5 2500k
Evga 570GTX
Antec Pro 750W 80 plus (gold)
NZXT Phantom

i got 2 old parts i'm using harddrive and Memory
now my memory is g.skill 1066mhz

now this system works but i can over use it because it shut down like everytime i try higher resolution movies or gaming it shut downs for 2 seconds and then goes up and runing again
i took it to the lab they said its the ram causing it and tommorow i want to buy new ram for the motherboard

My question is
1: can the memory really cause it
2: wich Memory from the list to buy? and if it will be runing well with games on high graphics !!
