Ok three things that i noticed right off the bat, the crash dumps are pointing to memory corruption as the prime cause so I would like you to run through this tutorial:

Memtest86+

let it run for at least 8 passes if you can more (best to let it run overnight) then post back the results.

The second thing I noticed was your BIOS is rather out of date I would check the manufacturer's website and see if there is an update
Code:
BIOS Release Date             08/25/2009
And the third is that you have the drivers for Daemon tools, which is known to cause BSODs If you still have Daemon tools installed uninstall it and then download and run this tool if the uninstall box is grayed out then the uninstall is complete if not click the uninstall button and let the tool do its job.

Run test for 5-6 passes or overnight: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If there are errors detected follow the steps to isolate the stick or slot.
