Thanks Indianatone! I really appreciate all your help with this.

Did you have a look at voltages in your BIOS/UEFI?

I have one more request for you before you replace the PSU. I have had a machine that has been doing weird things since the last NVidia driver came out. A new one dated 21st October just been released. Try that and see if the problem goes away. Unlikely but humour me. I thought my wife's machine had a bad motherboard or cpu so swapped them both out. That machine started to go wrong after running for nearly 3 years a month ago after I upgraded the video driver. FWIW http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help...uescreens.html
Free is also cheaper. The suspect driver is this one
GeForce 327.23 Driver

So it is my graphics card? Is the PSU causing it to malfunction which triggers the crash? My GPU is only 5 months old so I can't imagine it being the one causing all this.

I just got home and was able to get these when I booted up the computer. Not sure if it is good or bad, but this is what I found.

CPU Voltage - 1.12V / 1.20V (It would fluctuate back and forth)
3.3V Voltage - 3.296V
5V Voltage - 5.080V
12V Voltage - 12.288V

I don't know if this was the information you were looking for exactly but just let me know if there were any other readings you needed.

That is funny because my current driver is the 327.23. I will update to the new driver (331.58) and test it to see if there are any changes. Thanks for catching this!

Those voltages are perfect. It is normal for the CPU voltage to go up and down as the speed changes or cores go on or off (power saving when idle).

The PSU most likely seems to be causing the GPU to crash.

I think so too, but that driver gave me the runaround on one of my machines so its worth a try since it free.
