Windows 7 Hard freezes while playing games. (DirectX 11?)?

Eroraph Asked: Windows 7 Hard freezes while playing games. (DirectX 11?)?

I just recently built a new gaming pc and had my friend help me pick out all the parts, He told me everything was compatible and as far as I can tell it is. However there is one problem with my new rig, Every time I try to play any game, whether it be Rift, WoW, League of Legends, or even Runescape my computer will randomly hard freeze and I'll have to hold down the power button to shut it off and then restart it. If I'm just watching videos or browsing the internet I have no problems whatsoever. This has led me to believe it is a problem with DirectX 11 because it only happens while playing games. Below is my specs and I hope that someone can help me figure out a solution to my problem. Thanks.
