Thank you for the great effort Dan.

BSOD Analyse

IOMap64.sys was clearly blamed on your dumps. It's the ASUS Kernel Mode Driver, and I'd suggest you to update it as the 2010 version is a somewhat known BSOD causer. If it doesn't fix it, I'd definitely look on ASUS' forum.

Code:
0: kd> lmvm IOMap64
start             end                 module name
fffff880`08ed1000 fffff880`08eda000   IOMap64  T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: IOMap64.sys
    Image path: \??\C:\Windows\system32\drivers\IOMap64.sys
    Image name: IOMap64.sys
    Timestamp:        Fri Feb 05 02:55:34 2010 (4B6B7A96)
    CheckSum:         00013681
    ImageSize:        00009000

Additional thoughts

Code:
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)
Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa8c07385feb, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: fffff800030b2e85, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    address.
Arg4: 0000000000000005, (reserved)
Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

Looking at your bugcheck it's likely that a memory corruption event was triggered. Though a driver could be causing the memory to be borked, but we're usually suggesting a memory test before moving forward. Do a scan with Memtest86+. Memtest is a scanner that'll check your sticks for errors.

Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.

To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.

I updated my GPU drivers but the same thing happened. This time I didn't get a BSOD, but my computer ran really slowly, and it would barely respond to mouse movement etc.

When I load up the game, the splash screen works fine. Its after I click play it seems to break!

EDIT: This only seems to happen for Skyrim. The other two games I've tried to run are Borderlands and Just Cause 2

Have you updated the ASUS driver yet? That's the main issue. (post #4)

I updated the ASUS card drivers but I don't know if the ASUS Kernel Mode Driver is included in the update. I'm not sure how to update that particular driver

Oh, what motherboard to you have?

Additionally it'd become handy if I could ask you to update your system specs, that'll have me more into the situation!

Thanks a lot!

So that means you have no ASUS products in your computer, or plugged in but you have a driver from ASUS? If that's true, I find it odd.
