Run prime95 torture test for a few hours. If it fails then you probably have a memory, CPU, power supply, or motherboard problem. If it works, I'd guess a video card problem.

If prime95 fails then run memtst86 and/or rerun torture test with slower memory timings.

This is just a start. Isolating the true problem can be difficult
