PC randomly locks up when doing tasks, Generally when downloading and playing games. I've tried uninstalling/Reinstalling my GFX Card drivers, Bought a new motherboard Taken my GFX Card out and used the onboard card and it still crashes, Mouses freezes and whatever sound is coming out the speakers stutters and repeats.

Could your box just need a good cleaning? That might be something to try first. Use a can of compressed air, or an air compressor with the pressure turned down enough so damage isn't done by too much force. Do not use a vacuum cleaner, they can create static which can do damage.
A high quality (quiet) case fan is also a pretty good idea. Spend a little extra and get a good quiet one.
The aim should be to get your system temperature down into the 30s and the CPU temperature in the 40s, or at least the 50s.
