Default Computer Problems, Blue Screen

I got a brand new computer which its not great but its pretty good for a gaming PC, but i just installed a new game World Of Warcraft and at some points i could play it and some points it will just restart and have a blue screen on it saying this could be due to a new hardware installed please remove the hardware and if problem prosists then use Memory Diagnostics Tools. The problem still occurs and i used this Memory Diagnostics Tools, and it reported for no problems. My computer consits of;
OS NAME:Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
Processor:AMD Athlon(tm) 64X2 Duel Core Processor 3800+, 2000Mhz 2 Cores(by the way its 2.0GHZ if that was easier)
Video Card: 8500GT GeForce NVIDIA
RAM:1024MB(im going to buy 2GB within a week)

I think you may have a problem with your RAM
What type you got?

How to troubleshoot specific STOP Errors

Read those topics to see what information we need to be able to help you. There are many BSOD's out there. Without the specific Stop code you got we cant really help solve the issue.
