All your crashes were Video TDR failure errors:

    It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

    Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

    If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.
    The above quote was taken from http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post280172, which is linked to in usasma's thread about this error. Closely follow the first three posts of usasma's thread outlining STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting and proceed through each step. Let us know if you need further help.

It seems this is a video issue. You can try installing the latest drivers, but I honestly expect this is a hardware problem.

Drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 296.10 WHQL
Code:
nvlddmkm.sys Thu Feb 09 21:02:58 2012 (4F347AD2)
Do you have a different video card and/or power supply you can try? Both are possibilities, especially if your PSU is old or underpowered. You can also try using your onboard graphics, although it won't get you as good gaming performance.

That makes sense...overheating can definitely cause those kinds of problems. Good job spotting it!
