update all your drivers to the latest stable version.
then hardware i would check your hardrive and RAM first the everything else
ive seen power cause computers to lock up. even happened to mine when my custom molex splitter i made came loose or something, had to resplice it.
sometimes a psu can provide enough power when the computer is idle but when it is stressed(increasing power needs) it cant provide enough power casuing compentents to fail. the first one is the power hungry CPU which causes the computer to freeze but the picture remain as the GPU refreshes(it would have enough power now that the CPU isnt using ANY power)
how are we going to give you a link if you dont tell us your motheboard
