Right, and also I have to admit, I have gotten the blue screen of death and my pc has crashed a few times, so it probably is the Psu.

A bad PSU will not normally cause BSOD unless it is affecting the voltages to the memory slots.

Software such as Windows can crash and when it does crash you get a BSOD and when enabled a crash dmp is generated.

Hardware failure such as a weak power supply and/or overheating are not software related and when a computer freezes or suddenly turns off the behaviour should be described as the "computer shut down unexpectedly" and not as having crashed as the latter implies a software issue as opposed to an obvious hardware issue when described properly.

Having the correct info means that helpers will not be looking for a software issue when the problem is clearly hardware related.
