PC-Check by Eurosoft is a great stress test program, not through, but
PC Wizard 2008 has benchmarking that might stress your system enough to
reproduce a crash
Prime95 will stress the hell out of your RAM or CPU
Memtest86 or just Memtest (2 different programs I believe) will find ANY
ram problem, almost guaranteed, run it for at least 2 hours, or until
you get an error. If you get an error remove that memory DIMM or replace
it with a new one. If you're not sure how to do that, take it to The
Geek Squad and tell them you need to replace X DIMM. Shouldn't charge
more than $39 to install the ram + the cost of the ram of course.
Good luck buddy. Any other games crash on your system? Has this only
started happening recently?
