First I would try a different operating system to rule out Windows 7 as it is still fairly new and could cause issues. You can download e.g. ubuntu linux live cd and run it off the cd to see if your system still freezes. If it does then indeed you might have a hardware problem. Live CD usually contains memory test programs, you could try running that to check the RAM.
Have a look in the BIOS-it might be worth resetting the settings to default/failsafe settings.
If you still can't find any issues I would suggest opening the PC and checking for obvious overheating. Make sure all fans are spinning (check the one on the video card too) and remove any dust if necessary.
If all is in order, try swapping the video card (or removing it in case you have onboard one).
I hope you sort it out, it sounds like a nice system :)

Turn on the computer and begin hitting the "F8" key when you see the BIOS screen.
This will take you to the Safe Mode menu.
Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode," then hit "Enter" on your keyboard.
This will boot your computer in Safe Mode, a minimalist manner of operating Windows that runs only essential Windows files.
If using Windows XP in Safe Mode, click the "Start" button and then click "Run." In the box that pops up, type "msconfig" and hit "Enter."
If using Windows Vista or Windows 7, click the Windows logo in the bottom left corner of the screen, type "msconfig" in the search field and then hit "Enter."
This will open the System Configuration Utility.
In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Services" tab, check the box that reads, "Hide All Microsoft Services," click "Disable All" and then click "Apply."
In the System Configuration Utility box, click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and then click "Apply." Next, click the "Close" box.
A box will pop up that prompts you to restart your computer.
Select "Restart" and let the computer restart itself, allowing it to boot to Windows normally.
If the computer still stalls when trying to boot to Windows, restart the computer and boot to Safe Mode again.
Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode, deleting any files that are flagged as viruses, spyware or malware. Restart the computer and boot to Windows normally
hope this helps
