Two fold question:

Recently Ive been getting BSOD every time I try to copy a file to another device, such as copying to an external HDD or even streaming file to my xbox xbmc. Sometimes will get BSOD right after a reboot. This machine has been in use for about 5 years so I cant really complain.
I get alot of memory leaks lately with various applications. So could it be a RAM problem?

If Im unable to find the cause, Ill be looking to upgrade while using some of the leftover parts.


I was looking to get the i7-860 for about $280 but saw I could save about $80 on the
i5-750 and then in a year or two buy a used i7 for cheap.
Anyone foresee any problems with the following build?

Thanks

Web surfing, trading ( tradestation, Metatrader), GNS3 dynamips, some gaming but not hardcore ( 5 hr/wk)

2) What's your budget? Are tax and shipping included?
$800
3) Where do you live?

The parts you selected looks good. Memory modules are at 1.65V and MSI mobo uses all Solid State Capacitors. Looks good.
