Windows 7: Random Blue Screens on fresh(er) Computer Build

Random Blue Screens on fresh(er) Computer Build

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but from what I can tell this should be a good experience!

Anyways... current specs are

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
AMD Phenom 2 X6 1100T (3.3Ghz)
16 GB Corsair Vengeance (4 X 4GB)
HIS Radeon HD 6950 2GB (Dirt3 Edition)
Crucial 64 GB SSD (Main / OS & Office)
Hitachi 2TB (Deskstar?)
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Ever since I built this computer I've been getting random BSOD's doing pretty much any task. Most of them have been during gaming (Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, etc) and I've even noticed some during random web browsing (YouTube mainly.) It made me think graphics so I've uninstalled and reinstalled my Catalyst Drivers (AMD Uninstall & DriverSweeper for good measure) and still haven't been able to pinpoint my problem. Attached are 30 or so Dump Files & the Performance Monitor results. Hope this helps you, help me.

Thank you so much in advance,

For testing purposes remove norton from your system.

For the moment download,install and use Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall.
