Windows 7: BSOD While Gaming

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD While Gaming

Okay, so... I have been with x32 bit Windows 7 Ultimate for 2-3 years now. Through this period, I have tried numerous times to install x64 and each time I got a BSOD. Until now I was okay with it, but yesterday my computer got real slow on x32. I opened it and cleaned it up good with the air-compressor. It was still the same. So I finally decided to go on x64 again. I installed all the drivers, started League of Legends and in the middle of the game - BSOD. Everywhere I looked the first thing they suggested was to reinstall. So I did a complete clean reinstall. I formated all of my local disks. Then I noticed that I had the drivers for everything already installed, by Windows, I guess. I figured I should try playing like that and started the game again. In the first 10 minutes it was okay, then it crashed again. This happened today. For the record, I have never had BSOD on x32 version.

System Spec:
- Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- Full Retail
- 3 years old hardware
- reinstalled today

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300, 2500 MHz (7.5 x 333)

P.S: It doesn't happen with League of Legends only, I have tried other games as well.

Edit: I checked the dump files in the previous installation on x64 and they all had ntoskrnl.exe for a reason.
