Default Made first computer, having issue with graphic intensive applications

I recently built my first computer, installed windows and updated all drivers. Computer crashes freqently while running graphic intensive applications. Not sure what to do, any ideas would be much appraciated!

Mobo: MSI K8T NEO2-F Socket 939
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 +3000 512kb L2 cache
RAM:2 GB GeIL Ultra DDR 400

CPU temp is running between 39-50 degress while running these applications.
