BSOD playing games(UT3, Tribes:Ascend etc) Graphics or hardware issue?

Hi,

I am posting since I have an issue with my computer as you may have guessed.
I use an Alienware M15x with nVidia GeForce GTX 260M, 4GB RAM and i7 Q 740 1.73 GHz octacore processor.
The issue I have is that whenever I start a game, such as Unreal Tournament 3 or Tribes: Ascend the game launches fine, however 5-10 minutes into a game, the display crashes and freezes. This happens almost 100% of the time, on other occasions I can play the game peacefully but this is very rare.

From time to time, the computer Blue Screens aswell, and I have 3 bluescreen messages.

Those are the BlueScreen messages that I received after rebooting the computer.
The question I have is:
1. What kind of issue am I having, is it an overheating issue, hardware issue or an software issue?
2. What is causing the issue to beging with?
3. Is there a way to fix this issue, and if so how?


To save time for people, and before anyone asks, I have checked and now am certain that my Graphics driver is up to date, and I recently installed the latest version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable - x86 and x64 and Microsoft Framefowrk Redistributable 4.0.

I would really appreciate your help, I hope that somebody could help me out with this as quick as possible!
Thank you for your assitance in advance
