BSOD while playing high intensive graphic games. (STOP 0x00000101)

Whenever I am playing graphic intense games my computer will blue screen with the BSOD crash error STOP 0x00000101. It usually happens within the first 5-15 minutes of play This computer was recently built at my local Frys Electronics 3 days ago.


i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
750w PSU
8gb Ram
Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Asus P8Z77 MOBO

If you need to know anymore please let me know.

I took a picture of the blue screen(this is the only one I am getting):

From what I am told this PC should be able to run graphic intense games just fine on very high settings. I am most likely taking it back to the store but I would like any advice if anyone is willing to give me any.

Any reply is appreciated!
