I just got a new pc i built using newegg, and about every 2-3 hours i get a blue screen. It has been quite a few different stop codes.
My parts are: AMD phenom II 4x 965
Saphire Radeon 6850
Antec 550w psu
MSI 970a g46 motherboard
GSkill Ripjaw 8g (2x4gb)
I have updated the drivers and reinstalled windows twice. Im still getting the error

My suggestion is to run prime 95 and torture test the CPU and then the RAM (not simultaneously with the blend test). If that passes without any errors then run furmark for as long as you can, any artifacts and I suspect your video card to be defective.

Take out 1 stick of ram and see if you get any stability. Bad RAM can cause lots of weird things I've read.

I would burn a cd with memtest86 you can get the iso here http://www.memtest86.com/ . Even with new ram it is possible to have a bad stick. Bad ram can produce a lot of different stop codes. Also check your CPU temp. I would start there.

Dude I just bought basically the same thing from new eggs except with 4 gb ram and an hd 7770. What do you think of it when it actually works and what do you think of the ripjaw x ram series?
