Windows 7: BSOD while playing various games in Steam, Win7 Ultimate x64

Problem is persisting after reinstalling Windows, can't really pinpoint it to any certain program, since the problem seemed to start right after installing ''the essential'' drivers and stuff from MSI disket that came with the motherboard. I hope the files attached help, I'm sorry for not being tech savvy at all I'm happy to provide additional information if needed, provided that it is not beyond my techincal skills.

Thank you for taking your time to help,

-Jake

Edit: I mean, thank you for spending your time to help me... Well I hope I at least make myself somewhat understood -__-

Blue screen came again, but this time I thought the error message was different! I couldn't see it properly as it flashed on the screen for maybe 2 seconds, but I think it said something along the lines of; IRQ_LESS_THAN something something...

New log files attached, thank you for your patience.

-Jake

Hello, jakezuku I'll see if I can help you. Please do something for me first.
Please fill out your System Specs

Please Run Memtest86+

information   Information
Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask

Alright! I ran the memtest! I took a photo of the screen before I exited, just in case (see attachment). What should I do next?

Run both sticks, one at a time in each dimm slot. Keep track of which stick and each slot. I'm sure you know the test failed. We now need to find out if the ram is bad or there is a problem with the Dimm slots on the board. This will answer that question.

Alright, so I'll just start by removing a stick, running the test, and then insert that back in, do the next, then maybe the other way around? As in, check the possible combinations?

Thank you so much for your help so far, essenbe! It's really nice of you.

Check stick #1 in Dimm slot 1, then the same stick in Dimm Slot #2 then 3 then 4, keeping track of errors and which slots with each stick. Then check the next stick the same way.
