    I take it you built this reecently and installed XP on it? What order did you install the drivers in? It should go: Chipset (motherboard), DirectX, Video, others. Try Catalysts, too. They might work better than Omega.

    Also, when you installed, did you reformat your hard drive beforehand? Somewhat random problems can occur if you don't do a fresh install on an empty drive.

    Too many fans or poor placement can actually cause "dead zones" in the airflow pattern. Have you done any temp monitoring? Is the HSF properly mounted? Did you use a good heatsink compound?

    have you tried updating your motherboard BIOS? i had the exact same problem with crashes in games until i updated the BIOS, after that it all worked sweet. i have the Asus A7N8X Deluxe, which is slightly older than your -E board, the new BIOS might be the solution for this case as well.

    Like I said, try the actual Catalysts. In addition, try the Windows XP guides at www.tweakguides.com.

    I think this is a software problem, meaning you have setup somethng wrong (i.e. installation order, using Omega rather than Catalysts). However, it may be hardware. You can try replacing different parts of your system with other hardware. Mainly the video card and RAM.
