I just replace 2 2gb ddr2 rams with 2 2gb ddr3 rams and keep getting blue screen and crashes after playing for awhile. Is there anything i need to do?

Brand & Model of your Mobo?
Mobo's that use DDR2 are rarely capable of using DDR3.

That Mobo will accept DDR3.
My experiences with Geil RAM have been less than positive and very commonly caused BSOD's. G.Skill-Mushkin-Corsair are reliable.
What are the Error Codes you get on the BSOD?
Do you get BSOD's with the old RAM?

No my old rams worked fine. I didnt reccord the error code but i will nxt time it happens, usually takes about 30-45 mins then the bsod show up.
Cam it be that i need to config bios or something?

You can try changing Bios settings but I doubt it will be effective.
Lower tier Mobo's can be selective about what RAM they like/don't like. My best advice would be to return the Geil RAM and exchange it for a different brand like the ones I posted earlier.
