BSOD while doing pretty much anything, especially gaming

Hello,
I'm desperate for help. PC's been BSODing a lot lately, up to the point where I don't even try to do anything on it because it usually ends with a BSOD. It's usually SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I used WhoCrashed and got 51 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. 2 third party drivers have been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer.
atikmdag.sys (ATI Radeon Kernel Mode Driver, ATI Technologies Inc.)
lvusbs64.sys (USB Statistic Driver, Logitech Inc.)
And in addition to all that, computer's been really slow and started making noise. I know very little about actual computer hardware and software and some "solutions" I could find online might as well have been in Chinese.
I'm uploading the BSOD report in zip.
Please help.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Memtest should be done overnight.
