Random BSOD's - mostly while playing games.

So a short while back I had a completely random BSOD while just using Google Chrome. I thought nothing of it, since it's been a long time since i've had a BSOD. However, at that point I started receiving constant and random BSOD's, and most of the time they appear while i'm playing video games.

Every time I get a blue screen, it gives me a random error, such as: BAD_POOL_HEADER, SYSTEM_EXIT_OWNED_MUTEX, and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. After running Memtest86 and recieving over 250k reported errors - and that number was rising very quickly - I thought it was the RAM that was the culprit. However, after doing a full reformat of my primary HDD drive, and buying brand new RAM, the BSOD's are still present.

Just today, I had 4 of them in less than an hour - and one of them happened because I emptied the recycle bin! I have no idea where to go from here, so hopefully someone here can assist me with this. If RAM isn't the issue, could it be a bad mobo? Power supply acting up? Some random driver I don't know about, messing everything up? I'm sure you guys know better than I do.

I'm attaching the Seven Forums .zip in hopes that'll assist in the troubleshooting process. I quite literally have no idea what could possibly be causing this. Appreciate any help I can get!
