I agree, run memtest on the ram overnight. Also, you should be able to 
download a utility from the hard disk manufacturer to test it fully. 
Some are non destructive. Apart from ram and hd I would ask you if you 
changed any BIOS settings, especially anything to do with power saving 
features. I'm not sure how to test a NIC though.

When it freezes does video screen stay up. Cause if it does, I would run 
"top" to see the last program that ran and see if there is a pattern.

Also, if your power supply is failing things like this can happen. You 
have to rule things out 1 at a time.

Good luck Shawn.
PS if an staff tell you "I told you so". Remind them not to view any 
jpegs in IE. ; )
