comment My power supply/motherboard nightmare
@TuxRug. I'm running on board sound and I just changed my graphics card to an ATI Radeon HD 5750 so I don't think that's it. I think the sub 'pops' because it gets power, then loses it, then gets it, then loses it again.

I've considered this, but seeing as it doesn't always crash and I can't reproduce a crash, I might be running under par for a long time.

Alright so one more question, where can I find the info of what version of the branded BIOS is shipped with the mobo? So I can see what it supports. Newegg doesn't seem to tell me.

Is a BIOS update essential? The board I'm looking at is the MSI 785GT-E63. Alot of people say that the BIOS doesn't have alot of options. Not being someone who overclocks, is an update really important for me?

I was thinking that, but is there a concrete way of knowing if a crash was caused by CPU temp? And its not for every video, only sometimes.

Could a bad capacitor really create such erratic crashes? It seems to me like a bad capacitor would render the motherboard pretty useless. My board is an M3N78-Pro asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=DVvm9CU0G1bCC4gp

Alright I'll have to read it then. I knew that most of the time the goal of a hacker (I hate using this term to designate a malicious person, hackers are friendly) is to open a root shell. Thanks for your help.

Very cool, lots of good stuff on wikipedia from the link you gave me. I now see how data can be changed, but how does this ever allow for big bad things to happen (not like a crash, like remote logins and chances for malicious code to be executed). I think I remember seeing a talk on how the PS3 was hacked, and they used overflows to execute some of their code. How does that work exactly? I have a feeling that a big question to answer :)
