Default My system keeps freezing

Even before I installed windows on this new computer, it was freezing at random points. Well, not totally random, usually just when it was asked to do something. Sometimes something would be loading and it would freeze, sometimes it would be running a scan and it would freeze. Now, in windows, the major recurring point where it freezes is when I run Everest: Home. It freezes when its "scanning PCI devices." I think there might be something with my video card, but I'm not sure. Still, it freezes when loading something or scanning.

Update: I was playing Sims 2 and the game froze for no reason during gameplay, I wasn't loading anything either, just playing it.

Also, it freezes when I try to start 3Dmark03 and 3DMark05. The opener screen comes up, and then it freezes.

I have 1GB RAM, I don't know why this is happening, is it my motherboard?

I'd say its getting to hot - but it could be software related...

You could be right. My BIOS says my CPU is at 56*C. I think I should get some Arctic Silver 5. Any other opinions are welcome.
