Hi guys,   im currently putting together a new computer. the specs are as follows:

Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS4
E8400 3.0 GHz
4 x 1GB Elixer Ram 800MHz
2 x WD Caviar Green 1TB
2 x Seagate 750GB
radeon HD 3870
500 watt PSU

all the hardware is fitted. we have tried only one HDD, one stick of RAM and without RAID.  we have also updated the BIOS to F5. and reset to fail-safe defaults aswell.  with and without the 3870. the BSOD that we get appears after the XP Pro disc boots and finishes loading the required drivers. it says Setup is starting windows...then BSOD

the BSOD that appears is  0x0000007B (0xF78D2524 0x00000034 0x00000000 0x00000000)

we're almost out of options. any help would be great
