Windows 7: Random BSOD's, possibly related to graphics card

Random BSOD's, possibly related to graphics card

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

CPU: AMD FX-8150 8-Core CPU 3.6 GHz
Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
Ram: 4x 4GB (Corsaire, can't remember model name of it)
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti
1200w PSU (modular)

So basically over the past several weeks, I've been getting BSOD's about 1-4 times per day. It does seem to be completely random, I've had crashes during games, sitting at desktop, I even got a BSOD one time when I attempted turning off my computer via start menu. Last week I completely re-installed windows, wiped C drive, and re-installed all drivers, and the problem still persists. I have 2 identical nvidia 560 ti cards, and I get the BSOD's with both of them. I've tried nearly every driver available on the nvidia website for 500 series, including the one released for 560 ti compatibility.

Three BSOD's are the ones that show up:
0x7E - (also giving the program: dxgmms1) - google gave me directx as the problem
0x3B - something related to graphics
0x1E - Hardware Incompatibility.

Rarely, I get another blue screen related to memory and ntfs file system, but I think I fixed that recently by correcting some corrupted files on my second hard drive.
Attatched is the zip containing Perfmom file and the folder generated by the exe from the instructions page.

Welcome to Sevenforums, Jpow

The dumps point to memory corruption as the probably cause. This is likely due to driver or memory issues.

Please run the following Hardware tests:

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

BSOD possibly graphics card or memory related
Hello. I've been getting BSODs over the last few weeks with differing messages. Bad pool header, memory management, nvlddmkm.sys and others. I've had the ram and the graphics cards out and used compressed air to clean the cards and the slots. I've flashed my bios to a more recent version....

BSOD - random, possibly graphics card related
Hello all, I encounter BSODs seemingly randomly, but suspect the graphics card, as there was some correlation to crashing when using youtube or gaming (not so much when playing videos e.g. with vlc). Though recently crashes are more random. There have not been any crashes on shut down or start...
