BSOD when watching youtube videos and playing Star Craft 2

My 3yr old computer BSOD's when I watch Youtube videos and play Star Craft 2. Happily appreciate any advice, thanks.

- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 64 - the original installed OS on the system? Yes - an OEM or full retail version? Retail - OEM = came pre-installed on system - Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer - What is the age of system (hardware)? 3+ years - What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Not sure
