BSOD Kernel Power 41, Getting it on both games and browsers.

For some weeks now (ever since 20.09.2013 to 23.10.2013) i've been getting all these BSOD while browsing or playing games.
i've updated all the drivers i can get to. including the Nvidia one.
Computer is pretty new, so im not quite sure where the problem originates from.
I followed the post rules and made a copy of the sf diagnostic.
