Default New setup problems!

Hi all, basicaly i have just built myself a new pc, but, its not behaving like i would expect it too...
Im after some help figuring out the problem and then hopefully fixing it...

First off, this is everything i have bought.

CPU
AMD Phenom II X4 945, Deneb Core, Socket AM3, 3.0GHz

Mobo
MSI 790GX-G65

GFX Card
1GB Power Color HD 5830

RAM
2GB (2x1GB) Corsair XMS3, DDR3 PC3-10666 (1333) Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-9-9-24, 1.50V

PSU
750W Powercool PC750UM, Modular, 80%+ Eff, Dual 12V, Sli/Xfire, ATX12V V2.2 PSU

Case
NZXT Tempest Black Mid Tower

Basicaly, it just seems unstable....
when playing games they ether crash or hang.... its driving me insane!
atm im running the OS off an IDE HDD, and have a Sata 1tb for my media stuff.

anyone have any ideas on what could be the problem or how to pin point the problem?

Cheers all!

Have you installed all the drivers for the graphics card and motherboard? Make sure you have the latest updates and patches for your games.

Your motherboard has on-board GPU.

Would you have to disable the on-board GPU when using the PCI-E GPU?

i downloaded the latest drivers, i NEVER use disks haha

Also will give the Disabling the onboard gfx a go tonight.

only other think i can think of is an unstable PSU giving in when under heavy load e.g. games...
i have ran tests on RAM, Gfx and CPU etc n all seems good
