Windows 7: BSOD Hanging until reboot

Windows 7 64-Bit
BSOD Hanging until reboot

Dear Sevenforums,

After powering on the PC from the off state, it will work fine until a game is run (doesnt matter which game).
After about 10min, the PC will start hiccuping and flake out to a blue screen unless I do a restart on it before then.
Following the restart, the PC works totally fine for any amount of time, no problem.
Fresh formats do not seem to have any impact on resolving the issue.

Running Windows 7 x64 OEM
Fresh format (clean all) and install as of 05/30/11
The unit is no more than 2 years old.

Any help, advice, suggestions, comments will be greatly appreciated!!

Thank You,
