Hello 1231dice and welcome to the forums. If you would, could you please continue filling out your system specs in as much detail as possible. We often have to look up a component and having them under 'My System Specs' at the bottom right of your post helps a lot. Also include your PSU and CPU Cooler. Please include Manufacturer and model for each component if possible.
I have looked at your dump files and they are all the same.

Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arg1: fffffa800a6a84e0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff8800f0db848, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 0000000000000002, Optional internal context dependent data.
That is your video card/drivers for your card. A TDR error (Time Delay and Response) means your driver crashed and did not recover in time.

If you have any of the Gigabyte Utilities installed, uninstall them all. They are known causes of BSODs. If you are overclocking anything, set everything back to default levels. I am going to get you to reinstall your graphics driver and give you some instructions of how to do it. It will give you as clean an install as possible and not put anything in your system that is not used and can cause conflicts with other drivers. You only need the Graphics driver, nothing else.

I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall your current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include. You do not need the audio/HDMI drivers as you already have that in your Motherboard drivers. Unless there is some reason you need them, the only thing you really need is the Display Driver.
