Windows 7: gaming desktop BSOD 0x124_AuthenticAMD_PROCESSOR_CACHE_PRV

gaming desktop BSOD 0x124_AuthenticAMD_PROCESSOR_CACHE_PRV

I bought a new iBuyPower desktop from bestbuy for around $400 in august, and the only problem is that it keeps BSOD-ing when im gaming which is weird for a gaming desktop. I picked a cheap one because I'm currently studying to become a computer engineer and to learn how to do maintenance on computers but I don't have a single idea how to fix this. My cousin spent like 2 weeks looking at it and couldn't even figure out the exact cause. the only information I can find about the BSOD is in the attached picture. I'm about ready to smash this desktop but I can't afford a new one.

P.S I know this is the forum for windows 7 but I couldn't find the new post button on the eight forum.

I've noticed majority of my BSOD have been during games that I'm constantly clicking my mouse/keyboard (i.e Path of Exile, Dragon Nest, Saints Row 3/4, etc). If there's any other info someones needs to help me please say so. Any help would be appreciated

i've done the memtest before and that was no problem. Not sure what my max temp is for the CPU stress test. followed the instructions for the furmark test and the section outside the ring was yellow instead of blue, what does that mean?

Can someone at least explain to me what the bucket ID: AuthenticAMD_PROCESSOR_CACHE_PRV means?
