  1. Ok so its been a few months since i lost my laptop and i finally scraped up enough money to buy some peices to throw together a new desktop. I bought all the peices the same day. Msi k9a2 platinum ati saphire hd 3870 amd phenom 9500 2.2ghz wd rator 36gb hdd patriot 2gb 1066ghz ram sound blaster x-fi 550w psu ok so i got home put everything together and after about an 1 1/2 hours of trying to put everything together i was finally able to turn it on. I bought 4 hdd so i could raid them but quickly found out the windows vista doesnt like that. So i just used raid 0 with two drives. But when i finally got windows to boot it will only stay on for about 5 min before either freezing complety or giving me the blue screen of death. When the blue screen comes on it is so quick that i cant get the error code it just says dumping memory. I have tried windows xp and vista x64 both and have had no luck. Somebody plz tell me what im doing wrong. Faulty mobo, video card, ram????????
