Possibly the ram, but I highly doubt it.
Check your CPU temps, run a game windowed and watch it, if the temps never get critical, then then is not the problem. As far as I know, if there is even the slightest thing really 'wrong' with a processor, the whole computer doesn't work..

This really sounds like a bad PSU unit.

The PSU, is brand new, I really suppoes the only way to test it out is to stick another psu in it.

I've got one in another pc I can use for the time being. Thanks all for your input.

I had a spare gig of ram I pulled out of my other pc (still has a gig so no complaints), we'll see if it does it now.
