Hi and welcome

While I agree with Capt Jacks assessment one thing I differ in is that the video driver is the what probably caused the memory problem. It could also be the memory is killing the video driver

I would do a couple of things

first download memtestx86 and run it for 5 passes. that will give enough time to drtermine if you have either a memory problem or a heat issue.

second run a system file check to verify and repair system files
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

Do those and let us know if it passes bot it time to get more aggressive

I want to post a final message to people who are having a similar problem to mine. I believe I solved my problem. I booted up memtestx86 and found that it was getting random memory faults at certain locations, which is very very odd since when I ran memtestx86 on my other rig with the same RAM, it had no faults whatsoever. I then took the RAM the was previously in my other rig, and slapped them in my problem rig. Low and behold, they came up with memory errors when running memtestx86.

So at this point, I concluded that the problem was possibly with the board, but it's still extremely odd since this is an OEM replacement board that I got a few weeks ago from RMA and it has the exact same symptoms as the board I though was bad. I did a bit of research and found some other people with the same board and 1066 RAM having problems. On that same thread, one of the guys who had the same setup as mine, said that he would get BSOD errors running anything over the F6 version bios. I was running the latest F11 bios from the factory. I figured what the hell, let's give it a shot. I reflashed the BIOS to F6, and cleared the CMOS. First thing I did, was overclock my rig to 3.4GHz and run memtestx86 all night long. Guess what? NO ERRORS!!!! Excited, I quickly installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 x64 and immediately ran it through it's paces. So far, I've had no issues with any programs or games, and I even noticed and increase in performance and a decrease in CPU load (not due to the overclocking). RAM usage is also down a bit. Core temperatures are also a bit cooler as well, even overclocked. So far the rig is running beautifully and it feels like Christmas all over again.

So for any of you guys with later generation Gigabyte boards who are having these types of problems, I highly suggest you go back to an older bios build.

Please run this video stress test: FurMark: Graphics Card Stability and Stress Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Because you've updated your video drivers and the dump file still cites them in the stack text - so I suspect a hardware problem with your video card.

When you get a chance, check inside the case to make sure that the video card is getting good airflow, that the fans are working, and that the power connectors are all secure. Then, point a house fan at the case and let it run to see if it decreases the frequency of the BSOD's.

If this is a laptop, then check the fan, blow out the case with canned air (not a vacuum or an air compressor), and use a cooler pad to see if that makes things better.

I did a fresh reinstall, with the latest drivers after downgrading the BIOS. The problem seemed to be with the BIOS. I ran Futuremark Vantage several times and everything came back perfect. I played Mass Effect 2 for a couple hours and no crashing at all. I just did another overnight memtestx86 run, and it came back clean. I'm 99% sure the problem was with the BIOS build.

Those of you who are running a EP45-UD3R, 1066 memory has issues running in anything later than F6 bios.
