BSOD caused by new graphic card?

I recently bought a new Graphic Card Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti Boost and started to get some BSOD's.

Everything works normal besides the BSOD. I checked the attachment of the GC and updated the driver to the last one released at 1st of juli 2013.

The BSOD appears randomly but mostly during gameplay. Sometimes directly, sometimes after 15 minutes of playing. But also during browsing the internet.

Overclocking
If you are overclocking any hardware, STOP. Reset any changed values back to default.
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\MSI Afterburner	Desktop\Huub:Start Menu\Programs\MSI Afterburner	Desktop\Huub
Start Menu\Programs\MSI Afterburner\SDK	Desktop\Huub:Start Menu\Programs\MSI Afterburner\SDK	Desktop\Huub
Start Menu\Programs\RivaTuner Statistics Server	Desktop\Huub:Start Menu\Programs\RivaTuner Statistics Server	Desktop\Huub

warning   Warning
This is overclocking software and can lead to system instability and BSOD's. Please reset all components to their stock speeds and then remove the software.


Tip   Tip

If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:
  1. SSD firmware
  2. BIOS Version
  3. Chipset Drivers
  4. Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
  5. If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

Thanks to Writhziden for the steps above.

Start up
Keep less stuff at the start-up. Only anti-virus, this helps avoid driver conflicts and improves time to log in to windows.

Performing a Clean Startup
Startup Programs - Change

Hard Drive/Storage
Post disk summary using CrystalDiskInfo software - CrystalDiskInfo

For how to upload a screenshot or file, read here

Make a Hard Drive test from the mfg website: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

For errors on your Hard drive(s): Disk Check

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	Public
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

SFC /scannow

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type Command Prompt
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type
Code:
sfc /scannow
5. Hit enter
System File Checker

System Optimisers

Please remove the following software:
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Advanced SystemCare 6	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Advanced SystemCare 6	Public
This software is a known cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors.

Ty for all the info.
So far I did the folowing;
-removed Advanced Systemcare, Deamon Tools, MSI Afterburner (I wasn't overclocking yet but it came with the new graphic card)
-SSD was already updated, so were the chip drivers.
-run sfc /verifyonly, no damages found
-run Crystal Disk;

So far so good. I run games without BSOD today. Maybe I'll run the memtest later but it seems unnecessary.

Perform the rest of the steps if you get another BSOD.
Right now, enjoy the games.

No but I think it was The MSI afterburner although I have not overclocked anything.
No BSOD anymore.
