Default Lockups, crashes and multi-colored screens oh my!!!

So ok, latley I have been having some truly annoying computer problems. Like in the middle of a game my screen goes insane for a minute and then my pc restarts.

Sometimes like just now, my screen will get all multi-colored and my PC will totaly freeze. The only way i can fix it is to restart which in turn I have to restart over over and over again until my screen is back to the norms.

The last big thing I did was put in a DVD-Rom and that was a while ago so...

Have you been overclocking again? It sounds like its a graphics card problem, but could also be a PSU problem. What all have you tried to fix it?

Im worried its a PSU problem, no doubt it is. I will try to take away some power to the GFX again and see if that helps.
