    During Game play (WOW) my pc will just lock up randomly and has to be restarted. Any ideas on a fix action.

    Random lockups during intensive applications is a common sign of system overheating. Try blowing out the dust bunnies in your PC and maybe add a fan or two inside. If you have your PC crammed in a cubby hole, try moving it somewhere with better ventilation.
