All of your dumps are blaming your nVidia driver, this could mean that the driver is at fault or your card is overheating or faulty. We'll try replacing the driver first and foremost to see if that is causing the problem.

Download this earlier version from here and follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems for the cleanest possible install. Once installed test your system for stability.
