My computer has been randomly crashing during the smallest of tasks and I need help trying to pinpoint the problem. I recently upgraded the GFX Card and Power Supply and both were working fine up until a few weeks when the crashes started, they were sparse at first maybe a random shutdown once a week but now they are unbearable happening multiple times a night accompanied with an Event 41 Kernel-Power error message.

I really hope it isn't a FUBAR power supply, I really don't want to drop the cash for a new one after owning this one for 2 months.
