So I found out the problem. I noticed my Dell has these handy lights under the front of USB inputs. They are labeled 1 2 3 4. And they actually light up in a sequence when the computer restarts after a crash. Only the 2 and 4 lights were lit. Looked up the code in the book and it told me that the GPU (graphics card) was having problems. I installed a EVGA Precision, and it said that my GPU was reaching alarmingly high temps. Took it out and noticed the small fan on it wasn't even working. I modded two bigger fans right under my GPU in an extra PCIe slot and it works great now. No more problems. My GPU stays at a steady 60 degrees celsius now :) Sorry Dell, I didnt mean to bash you. I'll think a little more before I post next time.
I am never buying a Dell again. I'm tired of jumping through hoops, you're supposed to enjoy your personal computer, not have dreams of smashing it.

I have a Dell XPS 600 that I bought specifically for gaming. Now no matter what game I am playing my computer freezes about 30 min in. It's with all games, new and old. The screen just goes blank and the audio begins to skip and disappears altogether. Maybe someone can help out, I'm sure I can't be the only one having this problem.
