What Gigabyte mobo exactly?  I remember there was this one around the
2100 era that had serious voltage regulation problems.

If not that, I'd look next at your power supply.  You'd be amazed how
much a bad power supply can cause instability.  (and, for the record,
both taiwan and the US make both good and cheap power supplies.)
