if your system is rebooting by itself, highly unlikely to be the video as you're not using the computer when this happens I take it.. as for the RAM, most likely not that either... might want to take a look in the bios to see what the mobo and cpu temps are.. if the chip is too hot, it could be forcing itself to shut down constantly... although this didn't happen months ago, the thermal pad which is probably what you have under you hsf can break down.. and within a few months, you can loose a couple of degrees, making it now, noticable

might want to also give a check for virus's.. if your computer is just idling but still restarting.. you'll need to check everything out for anyone else to give you more advice
