Windows 7: BSOD - Most likely GPU driver related

BSOD - Most likely GPU driver related

I just installed a Gigabyte G1 970 GPU in my computer, replacing a 6970 GPU. Before installing the new drivers, I uninstalled the ATI drivers via ATI's uninstaller followed by a reboot. After installing the GeForce drivers, I am getting occasional BSOD's when closing games (Half Life 2: Episode 2 in this case). I also just returned from running errands and noticed my computer had crashed while I was out.

This started as soon as I installed a new GPU and therefor I believe it's probably purely driver based.

Attached are my SF Diagnostic files including the minidumps.

Thanks!

Sorry for the delayed response. I appreciate the help. I just re installed the drivers exactly as it suggested and will post an update if I encounter another BSOD. Should I leave the Gigabyte OC Software uninstalled or is it safe for me to reinstall it?
