I bought my computer just for Everquest but find myself frequently fustrated with it even trying to run StarCraft.

Graphics card : e-GeForce FX 5200
Mother Board : ASUS (A7N8X Deluxe)
Processor : AMD 2500+ (2.88)
Modem : PCI V.92 Internal
512 DDR (2 x 128 K-byte)
OS : Windows XP Professional

~its got a fan (very loud one :) ) so i don't see the problem is overheating.

~Its not overclocked.

~Drivers are all updated.

~Ive got A norton antivirus scanner with current definitions.

| Problem |
The computer usually just restarts about every 30-60 mins.

Sometimes I see a blue screen with white writing right before it restarts when i am typing or moving the mouse

(running it with a very old [5 years] IBM monitor, wouldn't see a problem with that though)
