try using only 2 gigs of ram, install the latest drivers
Usually the BSOD will give you an error code. 90% of the time there due to memory issues. Hell nvidia drivers were said to cause 70% of the crashes for vista. Just google the code and go from there.

Ok, im installin latest GFX Driver 178 and have removed 2 sticks of memory altho i hope its not a mem prob as i wanna install vista 64 at some point.
One error i saw was irq less than equal, is it the error on the blue screen i need to look at?

Succeded in braking Windo
I have some issues as well with SLI. When I disable SLI it does not happen as often, but when I have it enabled there is a 70% chance that I will not survive a 30 minute video withouth BSOD. However, I do not have this problem with video games.
Another tip to check is your temp, mainly GPU. Install speedfan and keep an eye on the temp levels. My 8800 GT since they are single slot get quite hot sometimes.
