      What program is shutting down with an error?
      What error are you getting?
      version of Windows?

      That depends on what programs you're trying to run at the same time. A new DX 10 capable game can easily use all the system resources on even the most powerful home computer.

        Since gaming and burning are 2 of the most intensive memory hungry applications i wouldn't suggest doing them at the same time regardless of the hardware you have...
