So it's been happening less, but still happening nonetheless. Thanks for all the help so far solarmystic; any other suggestions?

I took 301.42 of off two of my computers because it was driving them crazy. I just went back to the previous drivers. Things are okay again on both computers.

Here's a very important question I failed to ask you earlier on, one I should ask more often when it comes to problems like these:-

When was the last time you could play games on your GTX 260 without having those issues?
(before the 301 drivers? before some Windows updates? etc.)

(Did you perform the Clean Boot procedure i outlined in my previous post?)

This issue has been happening for months, before the 301 drivers and the 295 drivers (possibly before 283, also). I performed the Clean Boot procedure with both methods (disabling startup, then services); disabled startup was still crashing, disabled services I just did last night and no crashes so far in the one game I've played.

It's interesting you mentioned this bit. Let's try and narrow down which service it could be...

Go back to the System Configuration tool (msconfig), services tab, and start by ticking your services (after hiding all Microsoft sevices) one at a time, with a reboot each time and playing a game.

Repeat the process until you discover which service is giving you the problem.
