Default Blue screen of death?

Hmm... I didn't know that this still existed :P.

Earlier this year, I put some new ram into my computer (2x 512's of some Corsair ram). And ever since then, it sometimes gives me some errors when I'm playing games or doing random activities. All I can remember from it is it says something along the lines of "Physical memory dump"... I think... Could it possibly be that my PSU isn't supplying enough power to keep the ram, cpu, and video card going? Sorry I can't be of much more help, if no-one knows, then that's ok .

google, memtest and run it over night. That will tell you if your RAM has errors in it, also whats teh Wattage of the PSU

I'm not too sure. Any suggestions on how to find out? I think it may be an older PSU... Talking 5 years or more.

open up the case and it should say on the side (on a sticker) but, if its that old it may be failing
