I would check the heat sink on your CPU chip on the motherboard, a lot of the Intel type heat sinks if that's what you're running sometimes have a tendency to get loose, and thus can cause all sorts of issues. You could purchase some cheap thermal cooling paste as well, and apply it to the cpu chip then re-attach the heat sink too. My PC was doing similar things a while back and upon frustration took the whole thing a part, and in the process noticed the heat sink had become loose. I'd also check all the cards are attached correctly to the board, if you've tried two different graphics cards, I would rule that out, unless the socket on the motherboard is damaged. Also suggest removing the RAM from the motherboard and just blowing on the sockets incase dust is in there and then push them back in. I'm only just thinking off the top of my head
