since all the parts are new it is a fresh istall if that is what you mean.

could it be high temperatures in the cpu or the graphix that causes the shutdown? how can i monitor these temps? i have one temp sensor that is connected to a disp on the front of the case. the temp inside the case varies from 27 - 36.

today i was running the computer and i hade been surfing around for a bit and then decided to watch a dvd, as soon as i pressed play it hanged.

it might have been sitting wrong inside its slot or the stick itself might be defective. Try it again and if it still fails, try it in another free slot. This will tell you if the bracket is u/s or was simply badly seated or if the mobo is u/s.
