BSOD playing games - 0x124 Thinks its video card.

Been randomly crashing when putting my video card under load for months. I have updated drivers, watched temps, checked plugs. I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction before i start an RMA process. I've attached an SF Diagnostic file.
