Newly built computer, crashes while playing a certain game

I just built a new computer and whenever i play the game CoD:mw3 my computer randomly crashes, sometimes it'll show pale blue on my screen sometimes it'll be yellow and there really is no specific timing for it either. I've already upgraded my drivers and such and i can't seem to be able to find any solution toward this problem.

Computer specs:
asus p8z68-v/gen3 (motherboard)
intel i5 2500k quad core 4cpu 3.3ghz(cpu)
EVGA 012-P3-2066-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 448 Cores FTW 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP (gpu)
8gb RAM
500gb HDD
700W PSU

Go to control panel, admin tools and select events. Will show you errors that occurred during the time of your failure. Also, are you monitoring your CPU temp? Sometimes can overheat and die. Use CpuTemp. Serach WEB and you will find. There is an x86 and x64 version.

Does that show me the events after i force shut down my computer? because its not just the game that freeze, its my entire computer. And im sure it wasnt my CPU temperature either

You should review them for the time span that leads up to the failure. Review any critical errors for warnings or some indication that the failure is imminent.

Have you done any overclocking of the processor?

Well in addition im not sure if this might be the case, but the newest Nvidia driver causes my computer to crash faster than the previous driver. Also my processor is at factory settings plus my GPU is overclocked by default in factory settings. I will try to see if it crashes and i will check the error log after it does because there is quite a few errors in event viewer and they seem to be incoherent to my case. I will post a reply as soon as possible

sorry for the extra late reply, but i did read the admin logs and there really wasnt much showing that's related to my crash. This is was happens when it crashes btw pic below. I've read somewhere that the geforce 560 ti 448 cores was also a bit weird and not 100% compatible with the drivers which seems somewhat truthful since the Nvidia website itself doesnt auto find the GPU drivers. It only shows up as "no drivers can be found for this gpu"

Are there some older drivers for your card that you can try? I know sometimes the newer drivers cause problems and going back to an older driver can resolve them.

My computer has been getting the BSOD with normal use. It's a brand new computer that I assembled myself. The only parts that aren't new are the three internal hard drives, which were salvaged from an older machine. Appreciate any help, thanks in advance!
