memtest86 can help diagnose RAM problems.  I'm not aware of any free
programs for testing the CPU etc though (I've only used PC-Check before -
it's good, but it isn't cheap).

Worth trying to see if there's anything that the freezes have in common -
busy system, particular program, time of day, etc.
