3D Games are very processor intensive and combined with your graphics card can produce a lot of heat. Check the temperature of the CPU, it is probably too hot. You will have to check online to find the max temp of your specific processor. To check the temparature you can either use a program like sisoft SANDRA ($$$) or speedfan (FREE), or when your PC restarts, you can go into your bios setup and find your internal temperatures there. If it is too hot, open the case and make sure that the inside is not blanketed with dust. Speedfan will tell you how fast your fans are spinning, and you may need to replace one, or add one. I am nearly certain that the resets are caused by overheating...how to go about cooling it is another problem altogether.

    wow, that's an awful lot of fans for a 600w PSU...if you're sure that 600w is enough (you can find power calculators online) then I would run a RAM tester. BSODs are often the result of bad RAM, or driver issues. I would check all of these things.

    I know the rating is locked, but I still think that you should run a full memory test with Memtest86or some such program. I say the full test because the quick tests often miss the errors.

Dashboard or restart your system. That is a glitch that sometimes happens. It's nothing you did, but rather the Activision servers sorta messing up.

Everytime i try to join a game with a party we all get kicked out of the party and go back to the begining screen that asks what i would like to search for


That happens when other people join the party and leave before its done loading and there aren't enough players to play the game. It happens all the time with games like Halo 3 and RainbowSix.
