BSOD When Only Playing World Of Warcraft

My computer keeps crashing when playing WoW. It will flicker for about 1-2 minutes before it finally BSoD's. I have tried reinstalling OS and still same problem. My Drivers are also up to date according to Windows 7 Driver Update. The system is about 2 years old. The problem began when I upgraded to Cataclysm. I have also tried a fresh install with WoW and no dice. Specs are as follows:

My guess would be the problem is the gma 3100 video device. It's basically 2004 technology, the cataclysm update to world of warcraft includes quite a few graphics updates as well. The only thing I can think of is to disable every extra graphics feature you possibly can. Especially those related to shaders and lod.
