Windows 7: Varied BSODs when playing some games or watching videos

Varied BSODs when playing some games or watching videos

Have been living with BSODs of all kinds for years now and finally trying to get outside help.

Computer BSODs randomly when playing certain games (Hearthstone, Playerunknown: Battlegrounds) but not with others (Rome: Total War, League of Legends). It also BSODs sometimes with Youtube when opening a link from a different application or when I have multiple Youtube tabs open.

There can be 1-2 weeks with no BSOD and then they can occur 3-4 times in a day.

I believe the most likely cause is faulty hardware or driver issues but I have honestly tried dozens of things with no success.

Sometimes when my computer does not BSOD, it crashes into colored vertical lines.

Any help is immensely appreciated.
