BSOD's whilst playing games and normal

  1. CPU: DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2200 MHz (11 x 200) 4200+

    Motherboard: ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe

    Ram Speed, size and #sticks: 1024 MB (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)

    GPU: ASUS EN7800 GTX (256 MB)

    PSU (do not leave this out): SeaSonic SS-600HT

    OS: Windows XP

    My system used to be just fine, was able to play games and whatnot.

    Just recently (past month or so) whenever I enter a game, it runs for about 5-10 minutes, and then the screen freezes, and it enters a BSOD.

    Sometimes while I'm just using the computer normally, it also shuts down into a BSOD.

    I've tried everything in the thread, and my temperatures seem fine, the system logs don't yield anything helpful, and drivers and everything seems up to date.

    I'm dying here!

    Thanks in advance for responses.

    edit: I have an Everest printout as well if you think i should post it.

    just ran memtest, and i did not get a single test to pass.

    it also hung up at 67%, and would not continue.

    seems pretty obvious that your ram is going bad. you cant fix ram, you can only replace it.

    its just strange that i bought the computer about 2 months ago, new ram.

    i ran the test with both sticks in, could that be why?
