Problem is I still get the blue screens randomly and much too frequently (essentially each session I use the computer, I get at least 1 BSOD). I had windows 7 installed for a full year with virtually no problems on this system.
I have done a clean reinstall of the full retail version of windows 7 x64 professional.

Thank you in advance for all your help!
Your causes are all over the map so like you I suspect hardware. I do notice that many of them refer to video driver/card/power.
I would run memtest, sfc /scannow, and replace your video driver as described below
Download a copy of Memtest86
and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder
or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots. SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.
