BSOD, might be Steam related

I've been getting BSODs after trying to download games on Steam. It also happened twice while in a game.

system specs: AMD Athlon II X3 450, msi 870-G45, Sapphire HD5770 Vapor-X, 2 x 2GB 1333 DDR3 corsair ram, 1tb hdd

i did some research and found that the problem might be memory, but i can't check with memtest86 because i don't have a cd drive

i have not done any overclocking
attached is a zip with my dmp files
