'Random' BSOD Crashes, fairly certain its graphics card.

I am getting fairly random BSOD crashes.

They seem to start at random, but when they do the time between them stays fairly consistant, but the time varies between each set of crashes, ive had from 5 minutes to an hour before.

Ive recently uprgaded my computer with a new motherboard, processor and ram but the crashes were still occuring before this and i have done a clean install of my os. The parts that are the same are my hard drives, the power supply and my graphics card.

ive updated my graphics card drivers to the most recent driver, ive tested my ram with memtest and it found no errors

Im stuck and would like some help please .

some system info.

OS: Windows 7 Professional x64
PSU: i5 2500k
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68AP-D3
Ram: 8GB 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 (2x4GB sticks)
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTS 450
Hard Drives: 1TB (OS on this one), 160GB (Storage)
PSU: 1Kw

Hello Ezbee, welcome to Seven Forums. All of your 50 something .dmps present with BCCode x7f_8.

First, please completely uninstall ZoneAlarm and Avast from your system.
Second, please install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Third, Uninstall Gigabyte EasyTune6 and Smart6
Fourth, Update your PC to SP1 Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
Fifth, you also have 2 BIOS revisions for your MoBo. You may not need to do them, but these two address some pretty common issues. If you choose to update your BIOS, you do so at your own risk. GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68AP-D3 (rev. 1.0)
