Why does my computer keep freezing up on me.

Specs: Windows Vista, Quad core Q6600, 6gb of RAM
I have just recently bought new hardware for my computer. I was really excited about getting it set up but now that i have it in, it always freezes up when i am playing games, sometimes even when i am starting up. i bought the GTX580 Gpu, HAF932 case, 750W power supply and a v8 coolermaster cpu cooler."I know my cpu is bottlenecked." I have tried registry cleaners and i know that 25-30C is not that hot for a cpu. The only possible explination i can think of is faulty RAM. Anyone please respond for a seccond oppinion.
