System freezes every time I manually resize a window.

Also just to clarifiy this is a new system build.
I'm not talking about a clicking the 2 boxes next to the close[X] button in the top right corner, I mean literally clicking on a side of a window and dragging it to enlarge it will freeze the system. I've also been having random freezing and random rebooting issues ( no BSOD) for the past couple of weeks and unfortunately haven't been able to dedicate enough time to diagnose the problem. I'm hoping the recent discovery of this very specific cause to a system crash will possibly lead to the culprit of my problems.

- Ran Memtest86 - No problems found
- Prime95 - Temps seems stable while its running but wont make it past the 5-10 minute mark before freezing.
- Bios up to date
- GPU driver is up to date (anything else need to be up to date driver wise?)
- Tried switching RAM posistion between both slots, timings are within spec.
- CPU temp seems stable

Window 7 - 64bit
AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor
Asus M5A78L-M LX PLUS Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Patriot Signature 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Asus Radeon HD 6670 1GB Video Card
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Corsair 600W ATX12V Power Supply

Thanks for any help or advice you can give me in fixing the issue.

Define stable temps ! I would also check CPU voltage in Bios.
Are you overclocking ? If so you got the wrong settings.
You can set bios to safe mode see if that makes a difference.
With your setup, PSU might be marginal, I would check voltages.
