If you cannot even make it through a simple install of W7 without errors then again it points to either a RAM issue (likely), or a "MOBO bent pins issue...less likely), but it certainly isn't a PSU or GPU problem!!
okay, just trying to cover all my bases... so for now, just another 4GB of ram, maybe a full 8 (4x2GB), visually checking of all components (especially CPU - pins) and connections, hopefully they won't charge me for another windows install... last one was free, dunno.

If there's still problems after all this then I dunno what I will do... all wanted to do was to build a cheap costing but still good quad core mid range gaming rig... what I got was a gaming rig that has mental issues and sometimes moonlight as a door stop!
