In this order,

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker run it 2-2 times if needed to "fix" everything.

Run Disk Check
Check the Automatically fix file system errors box. (See screenshot below step
Check the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors box.

Run RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 7 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.

Run NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT post here the results.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
Leave the test running for up to 2 hours, unless errors occur sooner. Errors will show up by one or more of the workers stopping.
Keep an eye on your temperatures, and stop the test if the machine starts to overheat.

So a bit of an update:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker came up with no errors.

Disk checking came up with quite a bit, took several hours to complete.

RamTest came up with no errors as well, got into the 8th pass(having left it overnight)

The two OOCT test results have been attached as zip files

I'll do the hardware stress test tomorrow most likely; i'll be away from the computer for the rest of the night.

I experimented a little with the Gainward expert tool months ago when i first got the computer; but I've already restored that to default and uninstalled as per your prior instructions. Other than that I haven't over clocked anything (the shop i got it from wouldn't of pre-set it to over clock would they?).

I ended up starting the stress test last night, it was a really hot night, the room was really humid (the air conditioner broke last week :/), after about 5-10 minutes the computer started beeping and whatnot so i stopped the test pretty hastily - it was quite hot to touch so i shut down and let it chill.

Today I did the test again on a much cooler day, it ran for about 2.5 hours without any of the beeping and all workers were going fine without any errors.

One of the other gurus pointed this out to me today: Star Wars: The Old Republic Crashes Computers Even When It's Not Running - The Consumerist

It may be of interest to you both since SWTOR is on the crashing computer.

Thanks writhziden, an interesting read. However I was having issues with the bsod well before I installed SWtOR, although I suppose it is possible it has augmenting the problem.
