Default Computer freezes randomly....

I recently built a shuttle XPC and it randomly freezes at various times. I have a sn21g5 barebone model with athlon 4400 dual core. The computer doesnt give blue screen or nothing and just freezes up on the last display it was at, whether its playing games or on desktop. If screen goes off because of screen saver it doesnt respond to any commands.

The psu for the barebone was too crappy to run a 7800gt so I have a psu sitting outside the box supplying power. I dont think video card is a problem cause i had the system run on barebones integrated 6600(?) before my friend gave me his 7800gt to me and it was still freezing. I believe it also isnt the psu cause on both psus it was causing the same problem.

When i checked the bios cpu ran around at 40c at idle and im wondering if thats the reason. im not really sure what the temperature is when the system freezes. I have the case opened up right now with extra fan running next to the system to give it an extra cool. Im also trying to update the bios just in case but im unsure as to how to make a boot cd with the bin file the shuttle provided.
