I bought a whole new system just a few months ago.
My system:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3
CPU: Intel Core I7-3930K
Memory: 2 sticks of Kingston DDR3 8096 1600Mhz CL 9-9-9-27
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 3.5" 2000GB SATA3 64MB
Graphic Card: GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 OC 3072MB GDDR5
PSU: Seasonic X-1050 1050W

Ever since I bought this system I am having a problem of crashes, blue screens, freezes, bad pixels (not on the computer screen, on the windows of some games\websites), and display problems (http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-27116RadeonSeries-ATIKMDAGhasstoppedrespondingerrormessages.aspx).
Of course, I took the computer to the shop I first bought it for testing and fixing, but they never saw the problem and told me that they didn't see any problem and gave it back to me (they didn't test it for more than 2 days)

Those display problems I mentioned above come randomly only after 2 days, sometimes after 14 days but in the first 2 days it will never happen.

What I want to know is if the hardware I bought (especially the graphic card and the Motherboard are compatible with each other and can work properly.

PcPartPicker.com is the best source for compatibility.

So if you shut down your computer every night, you do not have any issues?

If you were having a heat problem that would show up right away. I would start with the memory first. Try one stick and than try the other stick.

Or you could run memtest on the memory. If the memory is OK. I would start looking at the video card. Plus all your parts are Compatible with ea other.
