BSOD when gaming, mainly errors 0x0000001e and 0x00000050

Hey there, I've been getting BSOD whenever I put a considerable load on my pc. It occurs mainly when I'm playing a game but sometimes it happens like when I'm converting files and have a bunch of tabs open in chrome.
I keep the graphics card drivers up to date and performed a clean install on the last one which was ~2 weeks ago, but the problem still persists. I also moved the memory sticks to different slots but that didn't really change much either.
I'm starting to think it's a memory problem, but as I'm still rather new to diagnosing bluescreens, I'm not really sure and would like a second opinion before I spring for a new set of sticks.
Thanks for reading

I would do a memory test using the steps in the following link:

Diagnosing memory problems on your computer

And yes; i believe you are right; it does sound like issue with one or more sticks; and/or one or more possible ram slots/connectors.

Thanks for the response. I ran the diagnostic as instructed but it didn't turn up anything. I'll see if I can find a blank cd to burn a memtest86. If there are no issues detected with the ram, would it be safe to assume the connectors are the underlying problem?

If running the test does not find any errors; then yes; the connector(s) could possibly be bad.

EDIT: Also, since you mentioned it happen when under a considerable load; have you tested the temps? Also I believe the cpu fan should be between 1000-2000 rpm depending on the fan setting etc. One more thing; when was the last time you cleaned out the inside of the computer case? If it hasnt been done lately I suggest doing a thorough cleaning/dusting(make sure power is OFF before doing so). As dust and dirt debris can act as a blanket; causing the components including the processor and ram to work that much harder and in turn possibly causing the components to overheat.

I actually cleaned out the vents a couple of days and there was quite the quilt in there, but the bluescreens kept happening. The temps stay around 110F when I'm not doing anything and go up to around 150F when I put a load on it.
I'll run the memtest and let you know how it goes
