Full spec pc and power supply. Might be driver conflict or overheat from a quick search.

I would;

Remove any overclocks you have (testing overclock stability)
Unplug your graphics card and see if it runs fine on onboard graphics (testing GPU and PSU)
Run Prime95 to see if it crashes under load more often (testing overall stability)
Download HWmonitor to check CPU and GPU temps (testing cooling)
Try with 1 stick of RAM or run Memtest (testing RAM)
Check all cables are correctly plugged in

How long have you had the computer and have it had any of these problems before?

Comp is 10-14 days old

No overclocks

It happens at completely random times,sometimes it dont happen so not prepared to run it without GPU just yet

Prime95 - No crashes after 6 minutes

I have CPUID - temps are all fine

For Memtest86 what 1 do i need to download

x.m.p extreme memory profile

all it does is setup the correct speed/timings and dram voltage for your memory,not all memory supports it but pretty sure the vengeance does

id test with another psu if you can aswell

I'm going to put another vote on perhaps a psu fault? Also, ahve you checked to ensure all leads are fully seated (stupid I know but might atleast be worth a try :) )

Yeh i checked mate,someone on another forum just said to me

Those voltages don't look very stable.

5V is at 5.67v
12V is at 8.18v

edit: ps is their any way you can manually check voltages (multi meter) to verify those results - software monitoring can sometimes be a bit off so alway sgood to check if possible.
