Used to get blue-screens, now just random restarts

Hey guys, I've tried to resolve this on my own, but I've got no idea what's wrong.

So, I have a Gigabyte EX58-UD4P motherboard (since 2009), and I was having blue screen issues while playing graphically intensive video games. I had 3x 2Gb DDR3 RAM and I was getting PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGED AREA. So I bought a new graphics card and new RAM (6x PNY Optima 4GB DDR3-1333). For a while I tried running 3 of the new 4Gb sticks alongside the 3 2Gb sticks, but I still got the blue screen errors. So I today replaced the old sticks with the other 3 4Gb sticks.

So now, I'm not getting blue screen errors, but I am having random restarts instead. The computer will just reboot.

Can you help me narrow down the issue? I was thinking of replacing the motherboard, but that's a large investment for something I'm not sure will fix the issue.

Oh! I've got a 850W power supply.

Any help would be super appreciated.

    I haven't overclocked, no.

    What's the easiest way to monitor the temps of the CPU / GPU?
