My computer (mb dfi c51pv-mg2; AMD athlon 3200+, kingston value ram 2x1gb dual chanel) crash after 10-20 min (power is still on).
I power off (pressing button for 5 seconds) and power on and it works indefinitelly
Usually this will happen due to an overheating problem. I would check ALL of your fans and make sure everything is working properly and that you are not overclocking anything that would cause issues as well.

From my experience as long as its not running over 100 then you'll be fine. If you have any doubts about your computer overheating you can always apply more compound to the heatsink and also buy a bigger one where the fan runs faster to keep things cooler inside of the case and always remember to have the side doors on as well.
