Windows 7: BSOD while gaming and sometimes random. DX related me thinks.

BSOD while gaming and sometimes random. DX related me thinks.

Minidumps are attached.

The BSODs seem to be mainly when gaming although not only.

The games in specific seem to be irrelevant as it crashes while playing smite, it crashes when I play Civ V but, only when I'm streaming Netflix on my second monitor.

I recently upgraded my GPU from a 7790 to a Sapphire tri-x 290x however, I also did a fresh install of win 7 Ult x64 so there should be no driver conflicts. I have tried AMDs 14.4 and 14.6 beta drivers as well as the old 13.12 ones and still getting the same 2 BSODs during gaming. I have used the Display Driver Uninstaller (Formerly driversweeper) to clean them out with each attempt at a different release of drivers and still crashing.

I know it's GFX related I just don't know what in the hell is causing it.

I have also run memtest to make sure that my sticks are good and have gotten back no errors. I'm at my wits end. There's no overheating, my PSU is more than powerful enough and a high quality I can't quite pin it down.

Specs are:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
Corsair HX850
Asus m5a99x evo r2.0
Sapphire Tri-x 290x

Thanks a bunch all!
