If it'* a software (or maybe even a RAM error) this will cause the BSOD to stay on your screen and give you a STOP code which we might be able to use to track down the error.
Let us know if you get any STOP codes....
As others have mentioned, it would have been worthwhile to diagnose the error before changing parts. Mind you a good power supply is aways a good idea.
To test memory, go to this site and download the free test;
Very simple to use with more info here;
BTW, AMD makes awesome chips in many ways superior to Intel (which I have 5 systems), just got to get a good chipset like nForce. Chipsets are the biggest factor affecting the user experience, Intel still has good products there.
