Question Possible RAM issue.

Well I built a computer not too long ago.
This is my second one.
My new specs are:
AMD Athlon XP 3000+ Barton Core
GeForce 6200 128MB AGP 8X
80GB Hard Drive
Gigabyte RZ Motherboard (not sure about the model #)
1 Stick of 512 RAM.

So here's the problem.
My first computer got fried because I was messing with the clock fequency on my old CPU. So I ordered all new parts except my graphics card (which used to be a GeForce 5500) my RAM and my hard drive. Anyway, when I try to play any computer game the game freezes and my entire computer locks up (that means no alt+tab or ctrl+alt+dlt). So i have to hit my restart button on my PC. At first I though it was my GeForce 5500 which would be a good guess because the fan on the card stopped spinning so thats when i bout the 6200, but that didn't fix my problem. I'm thinking its my RAM or my motherboard. If i could get a second opion on what i should do that'd be nice.

Send a message via AIM to t3hn4t3

Maybe the port is bad on the motherboard? Call Gigabyte, make them figure it out.

Thats what i though too.
I thought maybe the AGP slot might be faulty or the RAM slot might be faulty.
I'll call gigabyte if all fails.
If they cant help then iono.
I'll try new RAM then if thats not the issue a new motherboard.
