system32 contains the 64 bit files and sysWOW64 contains the 32 bit files.

RE: Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait
It doesn't take much power for a GTX 650. What size is your PSU?

Your setup has integrated graphics. Do you have it disabled in bios as it might be causing a conflict? You could use it to test your system with the video card removed to see how it reacts although it will be slower.

It's a 450.
What I'm talking about however is the cord used to connect the video card to the PSU. I didn't use the one that came with the video card since there was already a six hole connector coming out of the PSU, and that's the one being used.
Or maybe it's something else.

How do I get into the BIOS? Through the disk that came with the mobo?

Also just recently I was emulating Legend of Zelda with Project64 and I got a freeze. Like my most recent lockup when playing Crysis, this was not followed by a bluescreen.

Press the delete key during the power on self test to get into bios.

Regarding the video card, the PSU cable us fine. The cable that came with the card is for systems that don't have a PCIe power cable (the six pin connector you have connected now).

you can disable onboard video from windows. search then type in device manager. go to dispaly adapter and expand, then right click and disable the onboard video.

restart and go into bios, then make sure pcie is the primary source for graphics. then hit save and go into windows and run another test.

you can tell how much voltage your gpu is getting from gpu-z, in the sensors tab.

Same driver, different address.

I updated my bios to 0804 recently. Upon bootup I started playing Crysis and it froze up again, except it recovered.

I thought the problem was fixed but then the computer froze when I tried to enable my ps3 controller through the ds3 tool.

I had freezes long before I ever started using my ps3 controller on my PC though.

Yeah, I'm not going to go out and buy a usb just to use memtest when my RAM is pretty much brand new. I don't think manufacturers shipping over damaged RAM is common practice.

Either drivers are conflicting (which would be great if there was some tool out there for it) or my mobod got fried when my dad eagerly unpackaged it.

Sometimes a faulty ram module does make it to the consumer. Boot into safe mode and stay there a while to see if it crashes. If it doesn't, then it is likely a driver issue.

Well like today, I actually left my computer on all day. It's been on since morning actually. I haven't been playing any games or anything, it's mostly been untouched all day. If it had crashed and restarted my homework wouldn't have been still open.

So does this rule out any memory problems?

UPDATE

I was downloading a game from Steam and my computer froze, and then stayed that way for two hours.

There was no GPU intensive tasks going on, but I left out that my video card is superclocked.

RE: Random freezes, sometimes a bluescreen if I wait
I streamed three youtube videos in 1080p in safe mode. My computer didn't freeze. When I did the same on normal it didn't freeze right away, but when I decided I wanted to actually watch a video and closed the other two windows off it froze after about 10 minutes.

Since the freezing is so damn random I don't know if it would have eventually froze even in safe mode.
