BSOD playing 3D games (The Witcher 2, FFXIV beta, SC5) various errors

My PC works normally during normal browsing and office work. When playing some games like The Witcher 2 and not 2D games like FTL, they sometimes crash to desktop, and sometimes I get BSODs. SF diagnostic tool report is attached.

Temps appear normal. CPU is 35-40 idle, 65 or so during gaming. GPU is about 65 idle, 70-75 gaming.

Example of two recent crashes from whocrashed. Most recent was while playing SimCity5

On Wed 3/20/2013 1:30:59 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\031913-26613-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x75C40)
Bugcheck code: 0xC4 (0x91, 0x2, 0xFFFFF80003A4ECC0, 0x0)
Error: DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This is the general bug check code for fatal errors found by Driver Verifier.
The driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout. This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Thats a lot of dump files
Had a look at the recent couple and they are gfx related so as a first step i suggest removing gfx drivers running Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and reinstalling new drivers

Thanks, I uninstalled the nvidia software from the control panel, shut down cleanly using the power button since my displays turned off, booted up, rebooted immediately since windows did something with the graphics drivers, ran the driver sweeper and removed anything from nvidia, rebooted, installed the newest 314.21 beta drivers with a custom clean install, and rebooted again.

I'll have to wait a few hours to see if this makes any difference, sometimes I don't run into issues for weeks.
