Windows 7: I'm about ready to wipe my hard drive...

I'm about ready to wipe my hard drive...

I have been recieving relentless BSOD's for months now caused by ntkrnlmp.exe. When I play newer 3D games, I get a BSOD within 15 minutes, 30 minutes max. I gave up on playing games because of it a couple weeks ago, and they still crash. I have been playing a java based game lately (minecraft, if it matters) which was crashing, so I updated drivers and ran memtest 20 times over, with no errors. I uninstalled kaspersky and removed all traces of it (which was one of my bsod causes) and I have been running minecraft fine for around a week. I decided since I have fixed it, I would go back and play Warhammer online, which was one of the original games I used to get BSOD with, and you guessed it, more bluescreens. I've literally tried EVERYTHING I can think of, maybe someone here can help me. If not I was just going to wipe my hard drive

I am running 64-bit windows 7 Ultimate edition, full retail.
I am using relatively new hardware, none of it more than 2 years old.
I have had this installation for around 6 months.

Are you overclocking your computer?

BSOD are caused by npfs.sys, pcw.sys, ntoskrnl.exe, dxgmms1.sys, dxgkrnl.sys, etc

If possible, check your powersupply with a digital multimeter, rails should not go over / less 5% of tolerance.
