Consistent BSODs for over a year.
I built this computer in December 2009. Since its creation I have been getting consistent BSODs. BSODs occur randomly. Sometimes they occur a few minutes after starting a game (Mass Effect, SC2, etc). Sometimes the computer will be idling, and I will come back to it to find "Windows has recovered from an unexpected error," indicating a BSOD. I am almost sure that this is something hardware related, but I don't have extra hardware to be swapping in and out to troubleshoot the offending component.
Computer is homebuilt:
Mobo: Asus Maximus III Motherboard
CPU: i5-750 (running at stock speeds, has never been OC'd)
Watercooled CPU block
Ram: 4 GB G.Skill Memory (Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBHK)
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-850TX
HDD: 1 TB Samsung Spinpoint F3
GPU: HIS Radeon HD5970
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium X64
I am running a recent version of Norton Internet Security Suite
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Even if you can simply point me to the problematic hardware component, I can try to troubleshoot the rest.

I am sure your right of it being a hardware problem I would definitely test your ram sticks start with one stick at one bank at a time and go through them all the same way. It will take a long time but it will be worth the effort to get that narrowed down and out of the way:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
As I have looked through your minidumps everyone of them has to do with Memory Management...Let those run for at least 4 hours each and make sure they are seated well into the slots.
