Windows 7: BSOD after upgrading graphics card

BSOD after upgrading graphics card

I hope someone is able to help. I keep experiencing intermittent BSOD. There doesn't seen to be any pattern to it, it happens when I play games (NWN2, X-rebirth) and when I'm just browsing on the internet or copying files from one disk to another.
I upgraded my graphics card from a radeon hd4890 vapor-x to a sapphire R9 290x Vapor-x (4gb). I did a clean install, removing everything AMD with windows uninstall and then using driver sweeper, before installing catalyst 14.4. I am currently on catalyst 14.2 which is the version that's on the driver disk that came with the card, but still getting the problem

Here's the latest problem description and dump file attached:
