Computer problem?

I don't have a clue what is goin on with my computer, ill go to play any game, and it will crash to the desktop at some point....one time it gave me an error saying that my video card is the possible problem, so i updated teh driver for that. anyone have any ideas??
Its a AMD64 3200+, and i have a Radeon 9800 pro vid card. it only started doing it since I installed Doom 3 and put more memory in it, did both the same day. Im on AIM right now btw SN is slo232stang

How do you like Doom3? I have read mixed reviews and at $55 it is kinda high for just a FPS.

i heard it is insanely badass, and that it actually has the ability to scare the shat out of you if youre playing at 2 in the morning in a dark room.

I was looking at the system reqs and it called for a Pentium 4 with atleast 1.5 ghz and like 360 or so megs of ram. Guess its time to upgrade, I have a P4 2.0 ghz but my ram is only at 256, so i am out of luck there, but hopefully it will be enough as soon as i upgrade the ram.

Ive got a little more than required its a little faster than a P4, I don't know a whole lot about computers but i know it has 64 bit processor(on 32 bit OS out right now) and the FSB is 1600mhz or something like that, most computers are in the 6-800 range. I just upped my Ram from 512 to a Gig, that seemed to help alot. Doom 3 is definatly a system hog.

Bwahaha

Doom 3 was leaked a few months ago, I played it and beat it. Graphics are amazing, the story explains Doom 1 and Doom 2 (somehow), you need a *****in computer to play it, and Circuit City had it for 44.99 the day it came out
