Windows 7: BSOD on newly upgraded PC

BSOD on newly upgraded PC

Ok, first, I don't have windows 7, but wanted to post here as it's more active than the Vista forums. I upgraded everything on my computer last week, except the HDD and OS. Everything was all peachy until Saturday. I started getting BSOD's and eventually my computer went into a restart loop. It would crash before even starting. I wiped the HDD and reinstalled windows. I still keep crashing every once in a while. I wanted to know you guys could help out. On the attached file, I have two different BSOD's. Hopefully you guys can help me out. I'll be grateful for any help.
