Random rebooting and freezes usually are overheating symptoms.
In your case,which PSU you have?

A PSU isn't going to improve performance.

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

I dont think it will have anything to do with your psu

it does nothing to performance, it just supplys the power
