Windows 7: BSOD after I installed Rage on Steam

BSOD after I installed Rage on Steam

Hey, I hope somebody could help me out with this PC issue I'm having. It's making me want to tear my hair out.

Okay so, I bought Rage on Steam about a week ago, and I installed it. It automatically installed DirectX, and I'm assuming it's DirectX 12 but I could be wrong. I played about 20 minutes of Rage, and then it froze for about a second and I got a BSOD and crashed. Okay, no big deal, I'll just uninstall it and get a refund. I did that, and my computer kept crashing. First I was playing Gmod, then I was playing Men of War Assault Squad 2, and most recently it crashed during Warthunder.

I've tried to do a system restore to go back to before I installed Rage and DirectX, but my computer just BSOD's whenever I try to do that. I've tried troubleshooting to see if anybody else has had the same issue but so far I haven't seen anyone else. Sometimes, after a BSOD, my PC just freaks out, BSODing over and over until I have to manually shut it off and reboot it. This has been going on for a few days, and it's been really frustrating so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: I'm not the most computer savvy guy around. I can get by, sort of, but please explain things in detail. Sorry for the annoyance!

As I've been trying to fix the problem for the past day now on my own I've started to sort of learn its sporadic nature. It BSOD's when I try to do a system restore and it BSOD's seemingly at random when the PC is booting up. I'm not sure what I can do to this fix, but any help at all would be greatly appreciated, as this is really starting to aggravate me and I feel like throwing my machine out the window.
