Windows 7 64-bit

Hey Forums,
I am hoping to get advice on how to fix the BSOD: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.
This BSOD only occurs when gaming, most recently Borderlands 2, CoJ: Gunslinger, and Killing Floor.
My GPU has the latest drivers, and I've ran Memtest for 4 hours with no problems.

BSOD Analysis:

BugCheck 50, {fffff88011aaf838, 1, fffff80003380fea, 2}

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!ObpCreateHandle+29a )
Usual causes:  Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus,  Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
The instruction which caused the crash was pointing to the rdi register, yet the memory which was being referenced was a non-paged pool address, completely different to the address which the instruction was pointing to. I'm thinking that a invalid memory address was referenced and then written to.

TRAP_FRAME:  fffff88009da9660 -- (.trap 0xfffff88009da9660)
NOTE: The trap frame does not contain all registers.
Some register values may be zeroed or incorrect.
