Default Pc Freezes While Gaming

The PC in my sig is the one in question.

The last couple of days it has froze up while playing Quake 4....and Stalker

When it freezes, I still have sound, although it is like it is stuck in a sound loop.

I have already checked the temperatures of everything right after an intense gaming session and the temps are VERY good....no problem what so ever there.

I am leaning toward this maybe being the memory?

Any ideas or suggestions?

I built my pc on Christmas day.

I had like one freeze up the first week playing Nascar Racing 2003 Season.

Then I never had another freez up until sometime last week....have had maybe 4 freeze up the last week...

The newest installed hardware would be my Razer mouse....about 1 month now

X-FI Gamer sound card.....about 2 months
