Erasing and reinstalling is a good idea, if you're still running on the first install...I don't know why, but the install that comes on new Macs never is stable for a long time...

But before that, you should run the Apple Hardware Test, to be sure there's nothing wrong with your hardware (especially RAM).
To do this, put in the System disk that came with your Mac, restart it and immediately press the option(alt) key, keep it pressed until you get a multiple choice screen. It should show you at least 3 options: OS X on the harddisk, OS X on the CD/DVD and the Hardware Test.
Click on the hardware test and run the full test. This will take a while, so you can go and do something else. If your hardware is ok, wipe your disk and reinstall the system.
