BSOD whenever playing games or videos

Hello people I have been having this problem with my computer for sometime now where I have been been either playing a game or watching a movie and it simply crashes at any random point for some reason. I have unloaded and reloaded the drivers multiple times, tested the RAM, cleaned the computer our numerous times, threaded other places, deleted audio drivers and reinstalled them...its just getting to the point where i start ripping of the heads of fuzzy plush toys without relenting and I don't know what to do. If you guys could please help it would be immensly apprisiated. If not, well hasn't made my computer worse least...(knocks on desk wood). But anyways if you guys could help would love it, if not thats cool to.Here are some specs though...

you are getting the WHEA error, this is pretty much exclusively a hardware based issue.
The only occurrences I have seen of it where damaged hardware was not involved was when overclocking was in use.

If you have anything overclocked I suggest removing that overclock now.

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa8004de2038, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 0000000000000000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.

Debugging Details:

BUGCHECK_STR:  0x124_AuthenticAMD

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
