BSOD while playing games, error 0x00000116

While playing games (NBA 2k13, Minecraft, FIFA 13) I get a BSOD around 10 minutes in. My screen goes black and I have to reboot my PC. When I check what the cause is, the name "dxgkrnl.sys" comes up.

I think I fixed it. I've been playing Minecraft for 2 hours now and no Blue Screen yet. All I did was downgrade my graphics card.

I tried playing NBA 2k13 and crashed within 5 minutes. This time there were no dump files just a crash and reboot. Any help/suggestions?
