Hey all! I have just put together a new home built PC. The specs are:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester
Epox MB
500 Power Supply
2 HD - 1 120 giga and 1 180 giga
256 PCI-E MSI NVida Graphics 7300 GS
Corsair Memory - 2x512 MB

Now, for some reason my computer has decided to randomly freeze on me. I don't know when it is going to happen it just does. It can happen when I am doing many applications at once, or when it is just sitting doing nothing.

Any ideas?

Disconnect everything from the computer except the keyboard mouse and monitor.
In the Device Manager, is the an indication of a conflict? Check the Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools for an error message.
