How do I fix this graphics driver issue?

So I build my computer several years ago and have upgrading it ever since. Recently I reinstalled Windows to my SSD and reinstalled all of the necessary drivers. Now I can't play any games for much longer than a few minutes before the game crashes and I get a "[game name].exe has stopped working" error. More recently I've been getting the blue screen of death when I try and play a game and even sometimes right when I start the computer.

Here is my system info: System Info

Also I ran a program called WhoCrashed which gives information about system crashes. The info can be found here: Crash Info

I'm fairly positive it's a driver issue. However, I'm not sure which driver is causing it or how I should deal with it.

Thank you

    Hello... All my experience with BSOD is due to a Hardware communication, interrupting between the MB and Windows.
    1) Make sure you have no un-happy hardware drivers in your "Device Manager"... No Yellow or Red icon indicators
    2) Clean all card/stick edges with rubbing alcohol... And Re-insert cards.
    3) Inspect and clean all DATA and Power connections... to your Hardware and MB.
    4) Verify all devices CPU/GPU/MB temperatures are with in Normal operating temperatures.
    5) Verify your Power Supply 12Vdc has enough current , To operate your Video Card and CPU, at the Performance setting you are using.
    6) Test One Part at a time in a known Good Computer.

    BSOD are tuff problems too solve... and sometimes takes all those steps I listed to get rid of them... Sometimes it can be simple fix by a BIO Setting/Driver/Software Removal/Preference Settings.

    TO PROVE it is a Hardware Problem ( FOR ME ) means installing a Fresh WIN 7 SP1 RAW ISO ( NO UPDATES ) install on a spare Hardrive with just Device Drivers will verify this... If you Blue screen with this, your hardware has a problem communicating with the MB. http://www.w7forums.com/threads/official-windows-7-sp1-...
