Pay your money take your chances, step right up who is next?
Ah a guessing game, I like games.
Overheating will force you to reboot on machines without thermal protection, check your temps and make sure your not getting over 50c
If its not overheating you will need to start switching out parts untill you find the problem. lets start cheap and point at your PSU, a common problem with AMD. This problem might be resovled with Tbred if that makes you feel any better about your POS machine.
So, was the money you saved worth the aggravation and down time, let alone any lost data from crashing?
God forbid your core is chipped, be carefull when pulling your HSF as the core is brittle and easy to destroy.
When exactly does it reboot? Does it reboot at the same point during POST every time, or does it run for an apparently random amount of time before it reboots?
If it reboots at a random time after the OS is up, I'd suspect memory first, power supply second. I'd check the temperatures and voltage rails first, just because they're the easiest potential problems to check.
Memory errors usually cause random reboots; power supply or heat problems usually cause random lockups. memtest86 can help you check the first case; Motherboard Monitor (or your BIOS system-health stats) can help you check the rest.
