My computer keeps freezing and blue screening while playing games

My computer is brand new, i can play games without it freezing such as League of legends and Star wars the old republic, but when i play games such as Counter strike Global offensive, and left 4 dead 2, it freezes, forcing me to reset/restart my computer. Actually sometimes it restarts on its own after it shows a Blue screen of death for a brief moment, and the only thing i see is "if this is your first time..." and it restarts that fast. What should i do? should i make the clocks a different speed? is it a driver?

Windows 7 64 bit
AMD Radeon HD 7900 overclocked at 1250 gpu, 1600 memory clcok, and 1300 VCDC Temperature always under 50 degrees C.
Intel(R) core(TM) i5-3570K cpu @ 3.4-ghz

have you stress tested your gpu overclock? I actually had a similar problem with my HD 7770. It was easily overclocked up to 1300/1500 stable in the MSI kompresor stressing tool... and i mean it was rock stable. no artifacting temps were well under control. Yet it crashed EVERY time in Tomb Raider.

Had to back the overclock down to 1200/1350 before i found an overclock that would play in TR. Seems perfectly stable too at this overclock. Don't know what to tell you, but i bet you've overclocked the gpu too much. Those titles you're playing are very old and likely aren't stressing the gpu much. the ones that are crashing are newer and harder on the eq.

I was reading my 'minidump' files, it said the problem for it was caused by driver hal.dll, idk if that helps but i will try to lower my clocks down and see if it crashes or not

hal.dll means there is a hardware issue. Overclocks or temps would be my first guess.
