Windows 7: BSOD playing multiple games PAGE_FAULT..., dxgmms1.sys, and others

Win 7 home 64 bit
BSOD playing multiple games PAGE_FAULT..., dxgmms1.sys, and others

- Win 7 64bit
- re-installed Win7 upgrade 2 times, last was about a month ago
- was Vista OEM
- System is 4 yeras old , GPU is new

Quick back story. Started with instant crashing to BSOD booting games, stating atikmpag.sys, w/ a Radeon HD 4870 x2. Narrowed this to a bad video card/overheating. Purchased new Radeon HD 6870, and now get several other BSOD, but this is inconsistent. I can some times go hours w/o a crash and sometimes it's 30 min.

In the last two weeks I have seen these several times;
-dxgmms1.sys - usually with the page_fault_... error
-nids.sys, seen one time
-win32k.sys, seen one time
I also have
-The sound in games will stop, but i can keep playing.
-Game crashes to desktop
-A "Windows Explorer has stopped responding" message
-A "Internet Explorer has stopped responding" message
I have tried
-3hrs of Memtest86+ - no errors
-Driver verifier
-----this BSOD in game w/ page_fault_... and dxgmms1.sys
-updated drivers, GPU, DirectX, BIOS

I'm thinking new motherboard, HD format w/ Win 7, or a baseball bat

Please help,

It would seem my RAM sticks, although all the same type, have different versions. When trying to track down my video card issue I had tried resetting my RAM, and I must have put a version 4.1 with a version 6.1, instead of pairing them like they are now.

I'm having exact symptoms, let me know if your fixed, that would point to my RAM.

Haven't had a single crash since matching my RAM versions back up. If you have more than one stick of RAM try one at a time in your MB to see if you get one stick that is causing the crashes.

I've been struggling with these random BSOD's only while playing games (mainly World of Warcraft) and they are random. Some days I get none, others I get 2-3 per day. From what I've read and heard from friends, these issues are probably due to DirectX, my GPU and or RAM. Perhaps it is another...
