Windows 7: Hard rebooting BSOD issues that have been hounding me forever!

Hard rebooting BSOD issues that have been hounding me forever!

Hi There,

I have been struggling to figure out what has been causing my computer reboots.
It happens mainly during games and i've heard the same sort of problem from many people on forums.
I have been trying to solve the issue for about 7months off and on.
I have tried replacing power supply, hard-drives, wireless adapters, pretty much everything.
I pretty much stopped using my powerful computer for ages because it basically became useless!

The games run so beautifully up until they just bomb out it's heartbreaking!

If anyone can help me determine what the problem is i will be forever in their debt!

I have recently read up on how to save my .dmp files and .zip them up so that hopefully one of you kind, intelligent peeps can read the info and give me a clue as to where the problem lies?

I've attached the special log file .zip that i followed the instructions to generate and i've been told to upload!

I have everything crossed that one of you kind folk can help me out here...i'm willing to do anything to fix my comp, but i just need to know where to start!

thanks in advance for any tips!
