Windows 7: BSOD while Playing Games 0x000000f4

BSOD while Playing Games 0x000000f4

Attached is the file that this forum stated they needed to help troubleshoot. I've had the BSOD happen mostly when a game is in full screen mode and if I am running the graphics settings higher than "Medium". I've updated the driver so I've ruled that out. I appreciate any help you all can put forth.

System Specs:
CPU: Intel i5-3750k
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7800 series
Memory: 16GB(overkill I know)
HDD's: 64GB SSD(operating system)
2TB HD(games/documents/movies)

The only part on this custom pc that is NOT new is the old CD-ROM drive from 2007.

I am in the process of updating my Seagate 2TB HDD right now as i've been reading around lately and that seems to clear this up. I will keep the post updated and mark as solved should this correct the problem.

Okay I checked the firmware for the SSD and the HDD, and both are already up to date. Attached is the minidump. I don't know what to do from this point. I'll run the disk check and memtest tonight while I'm sleeping. I hope the minidump will give you more information.
