    I would take out the new ram and see if the problem still exist. If it does put the new ram back in and take out the new video card and try the old one to see if the problem still exist. If the problem stops when you remove one or the other you found the problem. It could also be that the video card or ram isn't seated correctly.

    @gamer: Did you ever get this problem fixed?

    My son has just reported the same behaviour on his PC and I suspect it might be a failing power supply but thought I would check out a few threads on this topic before making any assumptions.
