Hi
All ur minidumps points to atikmdag.sys,that is ati video card error(i hope is just a driver error and not a hardware error)well lets check...
Please follow these steps,
Download and install CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
Download and install Speccy - System Information - Free Download
Download the latest catalyst AMD Graphics Drivers & Software
Uninstall catalyst,clean registry with ccleaner,restart.
Instal the new ati software driver,restart.
Update directX
-------------------------------
Check GPU temp in catalyst
Check all temps with speccy
---------------
You said that the bsod occurs only when you play WoW,well when you finish the above steps test and with other games,if the bsod occurs only with WoW then is probably game (WoW) fault.
---------------------------
Test wait and please post back with any results!

Do the Disk Check
First do the 7. To Only Scan and Automatically Attempt to Fix Errors
Then do the 8. To Scan and Automatically Attempt to Fix Errors and Recover Bad Sectors (that takes some time to finish)
Then download and check with WD Support / Downloads / SATA & SAS / WD Caviar Blue / SE / SE16 (SATA II)
First do the quick test then the extended,have in mind that extended test also takes some time to finish.
