Windows 7: BSoDs randomly on various of games

The error is the exact same as before, a TDR failure, which means the drivers failed and did no recover in the time Windows allows for recovery, so Windows assumes it is a video failure. Here is what we don't know, and frankly, I don't know how to find out. That will require you to be very aware of exactly what is happening and pay close attention. We have had quite a few people with this problem with this same game. I don't play that game so can offer no insights. But, if it is the game crashing, then the Video drivers will naturally follow. Which begs the question, is it the game crashing or the video drivers. I can only tell you I have had similar problems with a game before, but I recognized that it was the game and not the video card. You are really the only person who can make that determination, and with several others having the same problem with the same game, I would be suspicious. Now, on the other hand, the symptoms you described sound like a video card going bad.

Whatever you decide you want to pursue, I will try to help, but it is a difficult thing to determine.

Not sure, because the BSoD has happened in Planetside 2 too, so it's not only CS:GO then. I will try to crash the game first, and then when it crashes, I'll try to open up a different game, like ArcheAge.

Hopefully I'll find something interesting

Try this and see if it helps
Enable driver verifier but only enable the options: Standard settings and IRP logging step 3.

CREATE A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT FIRST!

Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Follow this Tutorial for instructions:
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

We use Driver Verifier as it puts a stress on the drivers, and so it makes the unstable drivers crash. This should flag the driver responsible in the dump file.
It

Driver Verifier will make the system laggy, this is normal so don't worry.

Before enabling DV, make sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. make a System Restore Point Manually

If there are no points, make one

Ok, so I did run Driver verifier 3 times previously, and it in fact did run VERY slowly, until the screen started cracking completely. after a while of running (Mostly did not even get to use browser completely)

That looks like a bad card, to me. I hate to tell you that, and I could be wrong, but that is usually a tell tale sign. But, driver verifier is designed to make drivers crash. The purpose is to make drivers crash in hopes of catching the bad driver. If youwant to upload the file again, I will be happy to look at it for you.

Ok, so I'm confused here still.
So you want to get the most recent one (that I sent you already), or the next BSoD log I'll get?

Also, what would you suggest. Should I ask for a change from the shop I've bought the GPU from, or should I just stand this GPU? Because the GPU seems to be doing it once in a day/week...

I just thought you had another BSOD. If you didn't, just send me the next one you get. If you ate getting BSODs from the card, I would have it replaced. The only thing we haven't discussed, or I forgot is your PSU or your Motherboard. The PSU is a quality brand, but even they can go bad, but I wouldn't think so. Or your Motherboard could have a bad pcie slot. That's easy enough to check but putting it in another slot. You can try that and see if you still have a BSOD. To the best of my knowledge, the card, motherboard or the PSU is about all that is involved.
