Hello Roebuck and welcome to the Forums,

Please follow the BSOD Posting Instructions and upload the .zip file created so that we can analyze your problem.

The BSoD you are experiencing, Stop Code 0x117, is usually the result of a failing GPU driver, but we can't be sure until we've seen your dump files.

Also, when I look at your system specs, I see that you have "Victoria" listed as your OS? Please correctly fill in your system specs by following this tutorial.

Good luck and keep us updated,
