Now try any other graphics card there (you can borrow it from friends or family), or even if your board has an option for the onboard graphics, try it too. See if it causing the same BSOD with a different card or not.

Almost finished?

Okay, so I am using a Nvidia GeForce GTX 275 card, updated the driver using the manufacturer's website, the website minimum requirements are 550 watts, but my computer can still use it okay, however, for higher quality.it heats up really fast, and uses more power, so then it stops working and reboots itself I think. My computer will say my video driver crashed but restarted itself. I cannot use this video card with my current hardware, but it does not blue screen my computer.

Also, I tried the furmark on it, it runs to 100 degrees in about 20 seconds, I dusted it, I dusted my computer, so either the card's fans aren't getting enough power, or the card just isn't good at cooling itself down.

Can you fix the blue screens with my other graphics card, or do I have to get it replaced?

You should not use a GTX card if your power supply is less than 550 watts. GTX cards, in most of the cases require direct power source for PCIe from the PSU as shown in the picture below.
Attachment 364727
And the cable usually not present in the PSUs less than 550 watts.

Without it, it will be harmful for both the card and the computer.

Yes, my PSU has a direct cable to it, but regardless the computer hasn't blue screened with this card, so I will be switching back because of hardware reasons.

Again, is the only solution to replace the graphics card? If so, I'll mark this thread as solved.

As far as I am seeing, you need to replace the card.
