My System Specs

Default 775 Motherboard is giving BSODs. Replacement Ideas Needed

Hi everybody!

So my ASUS P5N-T Deluxe has been giving me problems lately. If i am watching a video and move ~ 2Gb of stuff between drives. My computer freezes and says something along the line of:

Hardware malfunction, please contact your hardware vendor.

so i checked my ram and its fine, so are my drives, so i believe its my motherboard.

Now heres the restraint from changing to a higher Intel socket. I recently bought 8gb of G.Skill Pi DDR2-1066 ram which cost about $160 including shipping (yeah i know, bad idea). so because of this i need to stay within the ddr2 based sockets.

Another thing is that i am running 2x EVGA GTX 570 HDs in sli and only nforce chipsets run sli unless i do that sli bios hack thingy on non-nforce boards.

I came up with another idea which was to use a Phenom II x4 965 along with a 790FX/780a AM2+ Motherboard which supports DDR2 ram.

I appreciate your opinions and look forwards to hearing them to help solve my problem.
