Windows 7: BSOD DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009f nvidia related

Windows 7 Professional x64
BSOD DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009f nvidia related

Ok so here is the scoop...I build this machine in 2007 of high school and at the time..I grabbed some pretty nice parts (as you can see in my profile for the specs of the machine). While the parts were great, I have always had problems since day 1..and they keep getting worse. In the beginning, it was random BSOD's from Logitech drivers (which they eventually patched), then sound card issues with no sound on most boots (which have returned), to multiple dead hard drives and sata connected devices (which never gave a BSOD or error report, just a solid freeze), to now this!
Seagate is sending me a new hard drive, so the one I'm using is temporary..but yea basically besides the problems above, having a different hard drive solved the random freezes. I am also running a new install of Windows 7 Professional x64.

It is rare that I get a BSOD...which sucks...but now that I have one I'm trying a couple last attempts to solve my problems before throwing the board into Lake Michigan.

The dump is attached, along with the system health report (I think I followed all the instructions necessary to post)

Like I said...problem after problem since day 1...Seagate was nice enough to replace the drive...and Asus replaced 2 SATA CD/DVD that's nice..but everything go. I had talked to a ton of people on the EVGA forums..but they eventually gave up (lol).

If it isn't the board from hell...I'm guessing one of the 8800GT's are on the way out, or the power supply is failing (which is probably because of the board).

I have tested all the memory sticks, hard drives, ran CPU and GPU tests, all passed no problem. Have even done a couple runs with no peripherals plugged in (also no luck).

Thanks for any help you can provide

It is much easier to find patterns, etc, when there are more than one crash.

We prefer you wait until you have at least two so that if one is corrupt the other probably wont be.

Since you only have one DMP and it is related to pci.sys I would start by running a system files check.

If you Overclocking I would stop at least to test.
