Random BSOD - Playing Games, Normal Use

Those particular drivers are pretty recent but not your Chipset drivers,

Update :: Gigabyte Support

Reinstall the GPU driver:

Uninstall Catalyst Control Center using | AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility
Then follow through with a pass of Driver Sweeper.

Download version 13.1
Note   Note
Install the display driver only! | Do not install the Catalyst Control Center software.

Your razer keyboard driver is very old!

My suggestion is to stop using it for troubleshooting proposes, but if you don't have a spare,
update the driver software.

Remove any gigabyte Utilities as they cause issues:
