Random Restarts and Program Crashes

Specs: Windows Vista
Hey everyone. I just recently built myself a computer. Since I built it I've had issues with my computer just randomly restarting whenever the hell it feels like. Also, programs tend to crash more often than I believe they should. Firefox especially, and games as well. I've heard this could be a RAM issue, but I've ran Memtest86+ and it seems like my RAM is fine. I even manually set the timings on the RAM to make sure it was right. Anyone know what else this could be?

System Specs:

Mobo: P55M-UD2
Video Card: ATI Radeon 4870
Processor: Intel i5 Quad Core
RAM: G.Skill (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10600
PSU: Corsair TX650W
OS: Windows XP Media Center Edition

Thanks alot for you're time. Let me know if you need any more info!

Right click My Computer,
Advanced tab,
