Windows 7: Regular BSOD during busy tasks and constant WoW Crashes since Win 7

Regular BSOD during busy tasks and constant WoW Crashes since Win 7

Hi There,
I am unsure if you can help me with this issue which i have had to put up with for nearly a year.

I built my own computer last January and installed Windows Vista first and everything worked fine but then I upgraded to Windows 7.

In the beginning it worked great, I did get the common problem of every kind of browser crashed every couple of hours and sometimes refused to load up again but i persist and put up with it.

Then over the past 3-4 months, I have been getting regular BSOD - They used to be very similar screens and i am not fast enough to jott down the error codes sadly.

I maybe receive 2-3 BSoD everyday and the most common issue i am experiencing is when i play World of Warcraft - since these BSoD began, this has been crashing a hell of a lot as well. I cant get an hours play on it without it crashing with the same issue.
I put it to the forums with this error log Wow Crash 2/1/13 - and was told to carry out some actions to see if this could resolve the matter which it did for a very short period of time (ie a day) and then came back with its constant WoWcrashes and BSoD

The BSoD happen when im on and off the game - a lot of the time its when a lot of processes are running, ie several tabs open in my browsers, spotify playing and maybe a couple of folders open - its as if it cant handle it running.

I have tried to search for my dumplogs, i was told it was in %systemroot%\minidump but its empty and there are no .dmp files on my computer except warcraft ones.

can anyone give me any advise of what possible areas i can look at to sort this issue out - i paid nearly 1.5k building my first computer after researching what would be best and im about to break it all up and buy a pre-made one because of the hassle this is now giving me

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Post it after the next system crash, following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
