hmm so it looks like if anything my caviar blue western digital harddrive could be causing problems since it's so outdated. I bought the processor and motherboard in a gaming bundle and the same store recommended the SSD and graphics card which I looked over and it seems that they should be okay. The Cosair power supply was recommended too so I think, if anything, the old HDD and case could use an upgrade, possibly a case with more fans to keep the heat down too, I'm gonna look online and see if I can possibly find some deals on those two parts

Alright I'm back! So, still getting BSODs of course even though I put an OS on my SSD and started running from that, and the BSODs are a little different too it seems. And I've tried playing games installed on my HHD and on my SSD and still BSODs.

Anyway, I found a link:
MSI USA ? Mainboard - Z77A-G45 Thunderbolt

Looks like test reports I guess to check the compatibility of components and my motherboard if I'm coorect. So I look through it and I don't see test reports for my SSD and power supply, though the test reports for the Corsair 650W are on there and are good. The test reports for my RAM and HHD are there and look fine. Though they only show the test results for MSI graphic cards I'm sure my EVGA graphic card is fine and I've tested my old 9800 GT and I still got the same problems so it's not that.

So, I unplugged my SSD and tried running some games and I still got BSODs. I could try playing a game on my SSD with the other drive unplugged and see if that works. I also tried playing games with the optical drive unplugged to see if it was causing issues. So, if anything, I could try another power supply though I'm not really looking forward to buying a new one right yet.

If compatibility between parts is the issue I'm really not sure which it could be, maybe the OS itself? Thoughts?

Okay, re-install the OS tell me how it performs without anything installed.

If it still BSODs we'll do the BIOS update and if its still BSODs after that..we'll try other things.

Keep us posted

Hey!
Sorry I thought I replied to this but I was having internet problems so I guess my message didn't make it through...

So I reinstalled windows shortly after that last post, and I'm still experiencing BSODs... if you want the dump files I can post them, but I noticed that installing windows 7 on my SSD I don't get the frequent freezing before a BSOD, though it still blue screens during games... hmmmm

I haven't updated my BIOS yet I was gonna wait to see what you think first

Okay..update the BIOS. Lets see if it improves anything.
You're having BSoDs right after reinstalling windows? With nothing.. No software/drivers installed at all?

With absolutely no software or drivers it works but I'm not able to test a game or video, so I installed a few essentials like my video card drivers and that, is that okay or should I try with absolutely none?
