So far the system is perfectly stable. I have not had a crash, freeze, or bsod yet. I also read that zonealarm has always been incompatible with most antiviruses except its own because zonelabs wants you to use theirs. whats a good alternative to zonealarm. I'm going to keep running my system and see if i get any more bsods or problems, and then ill check in to update my results.

Im not to sure about this anyone correct me if im wrong , but if it was your memory then this would come up all the times. If you where able to play for like 3 hours with no problems then i doubt its your memory. Get a new hard drive and dont install any antivirus or other programs and try and play your games and see if this happens again , also like some others sayd change your hard drive cables just to be sure.
