You are getting 0x116 bugchecks. These aren't like any other bugchecks in the sense that these only happen because an attempt to reset the display driver within the allocated time interval failed.
This can be caused by a few things, mainly display drivers or a failing graphics card.

BugCheck 116, {fffffa800a1a7390, fffff8800fa19e2c, ffffffffc000009a, 4}

Looking at your display driver version I recommend installing an earlier version and see if that helps.
It would be wise to follow these instructions as they have helped quite a lot of other people.

NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Based on your system spec, I recommend this driver:

WHQL 327.23

warning   Warning

This driver was selected based on your system specs
It's for Windows 7 64bit GTX 770
If you have changed hardware since then ignore this and DO NOT download this driver as it could be incompatible.

If that doesn't help then I would test your GPU to see if it's failing.
Furmark is one of the best.

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes

warning   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

It should not be failing, I bought it a month ago.

Try the suggestions above please.
Mainly your graphics driver first.
