Ok, well I'm going to mess around with some other games and see how they run and if they cause a BSoD. If any other suggestions come out based on the info I've provided I'd appreciate it.

Have you run memtest86+/ (the + version is important) RAM - Test with Memtest86+

You may check this out Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

Have you kept track of your CPU and GPU temps? Do you have a custom fan profile set for your Graphics card?
Have you run Windows updates until it finds no more?
Keep close watch on your temps and run Heaven Benchmark 4.0 and set their profile to extreme. The set up should look like this, but be careful about GPU temps.

I ran 7 passes of memtest86+ overnight, I've stress tested both my CPU and GPU, and they've been fine. I just did some more windows updates. And I did the benchmark you just posted and my GPU peaked at 79 degrees.

I'm not sure how the 700's work, but the 600's start throttling at 70. I would set a pretty aggressive custom fan profile on your card. PrecisionX will do it. I do that with my 670 and it never gets over 62 in that test. What score did you get, Just for curiosity.

I went a little more aggressive with the fans and it stayed in the low to mid 70's. I got 1299 with 51.6 FPS.

If gaming is the only time you BSOD, it seems it is your graphics card, drivers, ram, DX installed or the PSU. You are only BSOD when you put the system under stress. And then, only while gaming. I know your PSU is plenty big enough, if it is working right and I would be surprised if it wasn't but it does happen. I have 3 Corsair PSU's and am a big fan of them. I've bought close to 8-9 in the past 2 years and have an AX1200i on the way. But, they can go bad like anything else. I'm not saying that is the problem, just one of the things to consider. The test seemed to come out aboout right, I think. You scored about 100 points more than me. But, look at the score on the right, and they don't have the CPU you have. http://www.sevenforums.com/pc-custom...ml#post2514176

According to what I was reading if you use a previous GPU driver it should solve the BSOD

I'm not sure if you have a previous driver because your card is so new I don't use Nvidia so I wouldn't know what version you have

If there is one before it try it out and see if it resolves it

That seems normal for a 770. I have a reference 780 and it always peaks at around 80C when gaming with no problems. Are you using driver 320.49 WHQL?

Yeah, from the little bit of research I had done that looked in line for my card. And yes, I'm using 320.49.

vinone, If you want to, try this. It sounds a lot worse than it really is. You can do it in 5 minutes.
Download whatever driver you want to use to your desktop. Next, go to Windows update and set it to 'check for updates but let me decide what to install' that will keep windows from automatically installing it's video driver. Next go to C:/Nvidia, open the folder and you should see a folder named Display driver. Inside that folder you should see a folder for every driver you have ever installed. They will be names 320.49 and such. Delete every one of those folders, but do not delete the display driver folder, just the ones inside. Next go to control panel > uninstall programs. Uninstall all of the Nvidia display programs, but this is important, uninstall the display driver last. Uninstall the Nvidia update, Phys X, 3D drivers ( few people use them), Nvidia HDMI, and the Nvidia update (it does not work anyway). Last uninstall the display driver. You will be told to reboot, do so. When you log back on, windows will install a display adaptor, that is OK. Open your driver that you have downloaded from Nvidia, agree to terms, do not select express install, select custom install. Make sure the 'clean install' check box is selected and uncheck everything except the display driver and PhysX, then install. You will have to reboot after that. That will be the cleanest install you can get, and you will not have the HDMI driver to conflict with the Realtek drivers, but should have all the drivers you need. You can then set windows update back to whatever you like. I leave mine that way because there are some updates I don't want, like Nvidia drivers.
