Two out of your three dumps are IRQL LESS OR NOT EQUAL, the third is PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA. In one of the dumps in mentionds memory corruption, so it may be memory related, but we'll see soon enough.

First off, in two out of the three dumps there are DirectX related faulting image / module names. So, the first thing I recommend is your uninstall and reinstall the latest version of your nVidia graphics drivers. Also, ensure that you have the latest DirectX version (you should, but just make sure).

Second, since memory corruption was in the mix, I'd recommend running Memtest to check if your memory is bad.
