How to find culprit of BSOD

I was refered here by Jacee in an attempt to diagnose and hopefully avoid another BSOD. Sooooo, where do I start looking?

Hopefully the info contained in this link will give most of the neccessary info about my hardware. http://pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp...report=Summary

Attach only the bare minimum hardware when troubleshooting,
i.e remove all usb devices, bluetooth, secondary monitors etc and try again.

Stupid me, I was worse for wear when I posted that last night and left out necessary info. It only BSOD'ed on the first boot/run. I've since run it approx. 10hrs. w/ out issue if that makes any difference.

Try locating your memory dump files from the BSOD. They're usually located in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder (it may be hidden). If you find them there, zip them up and include them in your next post.

If they're not there, they may be in a file located here: C:\Windows\Memory.DMP
This file is usually too large to upload, so I'd suggest following the steps at this link to run an analysis and post it here: Diagnosing Bsod's (originally posted 02Oct08) - Vox
