Windows 7: New PC, 2 BSODs since yesterday seemingly caused by the GPU.

New PC, 2 BSODs since yesterday seemingly caused by the GPU.

Yesterday I built a new PC and I've already had two BSODs, one while playing Tribes and the other while simply sending an email. After the first BSOD I removed the beta driver I was using (with Driver Sweeper) and reinstalled the official driver and it seemed to fix some issues I was having, but then this new BSOD just came out of the blue.

Any help would be great.

Random BSoDs started yesterday
So I've had this laptop since December and it's ran great, but it had two BSoDs yesterday. One occurred while I was asleep and the other one randomly happened while I was watching a video. Both are attached.
