Default Random Crashes after installing RAM

Ok so I added 2x512mb of Corsair ValueSelect RAM to 2x512mb of Samsung DDR-400 CL3 and everything went smoothly after install up until I play games, sometimes while gaming I will get a random restart. I'm thinking maybe this is an overheating issue but I've never heard of that on non-oc'd memory.

MOBO:Intel 915GAG
CPU:Pentium 4 3.2 GHz
Memory:2x Samsung 512MB DDR 184-Pin PC3200
Hard Drive:Western Digital 200GB
Optical Drives:Lite-On DVD-RW Dual Layer Burner, Lite-On DVD-ROM
GPU:Sapphire X1900GT PCI-E
PSU:Ultra X2 550W ATX Modular
Case:Ultra Aluminus ATX
