Windows 7: BSOD when playing certain games

BSOD when playing certain games

Hey, guys. It's my first post here on this forum, so forgive me if I miss some things out.

I bought my current PC in October 2011. For the most part it's a great system, but ever since I bought it I've been getting sporadic blue screens when playing certain games, particularly on demanding games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Metro 2033, and a few others. Some games run fine with no issues, but the three I've listed are the biggest culprits. I can play for indefinite periods when the screen will suddenly go black for several seconds and the system automatically reboots.

I replaced my old 500W PSU earlier today after hoping that a new, more powerful unit would fix the issue. Alas, it didn't.

My current system specs are:

Windows 7 Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X4 955
AMD Radeon HD 6750
4 GB RAM
ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 board
Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2UK 750W

I've included the two required zip files and the latest minidump file from a blue screen I had earlier today whilst playing Battlefield 3.

Any help on identifying the problem would be much appreciated.

You have a hardware error (0x124). Read the following thread and see if any of it's fixes work.
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Among the fixes in the above thread are a few stress tests. Before you do any of the other fixes mentioned in the thread, you should run these stress tests:

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Test your hardware using Prime95. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat. Let it run for up to 2 hours or until errors have been found.
