Default Random Freezing, going crazy

Hey guys, whenever I am running 3D games, I get random freezing, anywhere from 1 minute to 1 hour into playing. The whole system locks up, mouse/keyboard included. The only thing i can do is a hard reboot. My setup:

AMD athlon x2 4200 dual core
Asus A8N-SLI mobo
2 gigs (2 x 1 gig) kingston ram
radeon x1300 (by sapphire)
250 gig western digital 7200 rpm 16 meg cache HD
Colorsit 500W power supply
Thermaltake evil eye case

Things I have tried to fix:

im 99.99999% sure its not overheating, all my temps are under 40 when the freezes happen, also ive felt around in there and nothing is hot.

Tried new and old drivers, both catalyst and omega.

I am thinking its possibly a power supply problem? but 500 W should be plenty... any way to check if my psu is deffective?

im pulling my hair out here, thanks in advance.
