From a quick look, the BSOD code seems to point a graphic problem.
I have tried to uninstall NVIDIA driver, cleaned the remaining of the driver and perform a clean installation of the NVIDIA driver.

Quick specs:
Intel Core i5-2500
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550ti by Gigabyte (GV-N550WF2-1GI)
WD Blue 500GB
Gigabyte GA-P75-D3
PSU 500W (included with the case)
