Have you deliberately disabled your ATI HDMI Audio? If so, why? If not, please update your ATI drivers.

50 memory dumps since the new year

MSINFO32 shows STOP 0x116 errors back in Sep 2010, and then you've been getting STOP 0x124 errors since then.

Older versions of Catalyst Control Center have been known to cause BSOD's.
Older versions of the Razer DeathAdder drivers have been known to cause BSOD's.

I would start by following the steps in this post: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

After that, please read this post (for the STOP 0x124 errors): Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

I'll post back once the memory dumps are finished running....

Your BIOS is from 2009 and isn't listed on the Gigabyte website (yours is F4b - Gigabyte lists a BETA F4j)
Did you update the BIOS previously? If so, where did you get the BIOS files from?

All 50 errors are STOP 0x124
This means that you (most likely) either have a hardware problem or a compatibility problem.

Since your DeathAdder drivers are from 2007 - I'd suspect that this is the primary cause of your issues.
Please uninstall the DeathAdder software/drivers and test to see if that fixes it.
If it does, then install the latest drivers available from the Razer website and verify that the BSOD's don't come back.

- Please update these drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall/remove them from your system. Reference links included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers:

ATI HDMI Audio...I did disable...had read somewhere it may be the cause of BSOD in Batman:Arkham Asylum but I can re-enable if you think I should. Thanks.

I uninstall DeathAdder drivers but in the Device manager it still showed as using dadder.sys.? Should I remove everything relating to dadder & razer in the registry?

But I put an old logitech std usb mouse on and rebooted and used it for a while and it bsod'd. So, do you think I should get the latest Gigabyte BIOS first ?
I believe when I first got the pc, I updated & it would have only been from the gigabyte website. After looking at their site just now, I'm pretty sure I used their @BIOS to upgrade it.
In meantime I'll run that furmark & prime95 stuff.

Reenable the ATI HDMI Audio - then update your drivers

As for the Death Adder, check to ensure that the dadder.sys driver is really and truly gone from your system (search for it). Most commonly they are in C:\Windows\System32\drivers When you find it, rename it from .sys to .BAK and then reboot. If the driver loads (with or without the DeathAdder device attached) it can still cause BSOD's. If it BSOD's without the DeathAdder device and without the dadder.sys driver - then we have to look elsewhere for the cause.

DO NOT mess with the BIOS yet!!! It's possible that you installed a beta BIOS - but it's not necessary to do anything at this early stage in our diagnostics.

Go ahead and run the tests and that'll help us figure out what to do.
Good luck!

Enabled the ati hdmi audio & updated driver.
Renamed dadder.sys to dadder.bak - while using logitech, dadder.sys does not come back but when I put my deathadder back in and reboot the dadder.sys reappears....tested using just logitech and no dadder.sys and received bsod in game.
Furmark ran for a while stayed pretty much at 79C the whole time, will have to run prime95 tonight.
