Windows 7: BSOD while idle

7 ultimate x64
BSOD while idle

I am not exactly sure what is going on. Motherboard had to be replaced and been having nothing but problems after getting it back from the people who installed it (and I dont even know if they knew what was going on).

At first I thought it was my raid/sata card (not sure which it is) and disabled that (short of pulling it completely out of the system) and woke up to a blue screen (with hal.dll most likely causing it). Most of the recent blue screens were ntoskrnl.exe with bugcheck 0x109. Now that is being reported by windows as a memory problem but the problem is that I am not sure if it is the ram or if it is just some crap drivers.

But recently the errors are now jumping around from ntoskrnl.exe to nvlddmkm.sys to hal.dll so now I am not even sure.

System information
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
- an OEM or full retail version? retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)?
-motherboard Intel DG43GT
-processor Intel Quad Core 2.83GHz (q9950)
-memory Crucial (ballistix tracer) x4 (8 gigs total) rated at 800MHz
(general info here BL2KIT25664AR80A - 4GB kit (2GBx2), Ballistix Tracer 240-pin DIMM (with LEDs) , DDR2 PC2-6400 from Crucial.comUS)
-video card nVidia GTX 260 Factory overclocked
-raid/sata (i have no idea) card (being used as a sata card [but not for long]) SIIG PCI SATA II 150 Non-raid
3 hard drives

Whats new (recently replaced within the last 30 days):

- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
I think the last time I reinstalled (before finding out the old motherboard had a problem and had to be rma'd) was late November to early December.
