Win7 x86 & x64 video card crash BSOD?

Hey guys, my pc keeps crashing, and a blue screen appear, took a picture of the two that always pops up. I have a partition drives with win7 x86 and x64 (for work and personal) both of them are crashing in the begining of windows or, i can sometime get into windows for x86 but the screen is constantly flickering weird colours. Seems like i have to replace the videocard, just want a confirmation from some experts before i proceed.

0x116 http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x00000116 this one is definately gfx related, have you tried updating/re-installing gfx drivers and have you checked your temps on the gfx card before you replace it could easily be a software or overheating issue

If it is due to temp problems leave it turned off for a while clean out any dust check all fans are working you could even leave the side off and cool with a big desk fan, would help to prove it, assuming the overheating hasnt done any lasting damage to the gfx card
