Windows 7: Intermittent BSOD Issue

Intermittent BSOD Issue

Hello I have a consistent BSOD problem which usually only strikes about once a week and sometimes up to 2 weeks. Usually I have been playing a game for about an hour or so before it happens. Have not been able to determine any consistencies in regards to what triggers it. I've attempted to update all drivers and debugging tools can never seem to pinpoint a driver issue (although that may just be me). Thank you.
