Random BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Hello guys. For some reason I get these random BSODs on this computer. I viewed dmp files in BluescreenView and it showed me that ntoskrnl.exe is causing the crash.
I have reinstalled windows already (win7x64 ultimate), same thing happens randomly.

First attachment is dmp files
Second is the report

Asus p7p55d
8gb ram ocz
1tb hd
pny nvidia quatro 1800
dlink n150 wireless pci adapter

Could you please look at them and tell me which path should I go about fixing this?
Thank you.

Seems like a hardware problem, test your RAM
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Update the Nvidia drivers
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
information   Information
If your still get BSODs run Driver Verifier and upload any dumps which are then created
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Note: Your computer may not be functional in Normal Mode if faulting drivers are detected during this phase, you may need to use Safemode with Networking.

Thanks for your reply. I ran a ram test and found that 1 of my RAM sticks is faulty. I took it out, and everything seems fine now. System is stable for 2 days now.

Thanks for your help. I will keep posted if anything changes.
