Computer beeps once, freezes and sometimes shut downs

Hi :)

My computer has been beeping once and freezing, which sometimes results in a complete shut-down or blue screen. The beep is coming from the motherboard.

It only occurs when I'm playing games or watching streams.

I don't think it is heat related as it can occur straight after boot up and I've been monitoring heat on speedfan, doesn't seem to be related, but not willing to rule it out.

I had some temporary success removing 1 of my sticks of ram, this temporarily solved the problem for about a week. And now it has returned again. I am now at a lose as to what the issue is.

All drivers are up to date, heat can be around 30c to 42c varying. Have scanned for virus's/malware with multiple software.

My machine is AMD Phenom x6 1090T, 1TB HDD, 8GB DDR3 (currently using only 4gb), 1GB GTX 460

If there is no label on the PC you can be assured it's not a good quality unit.
It should be replaced with a good quality 650W PSU.
SeaSmin-XFX-Corsair (not the CX-GS-M Series).
