Here is the Bad boy, I just managed to catch it with the Camera on the dump, it was at 85% so it was close.
Here are 2 links to try
The first is the standard msoft answer
the second offers a bit more in depth ideas.
They seem to lean towards a video driver issue but unfortunatly I dont have enough time to read them all.
Tomorrow should be better and ill check back and try to be more helpful
my system has blue screened but most of the blue screens are not seen as the computer just restarts randomly instead of showing the blue screen...
although, knock on wood.... after putting my new psu, known good video card in... (still crashed) and resetting to optimized default settings in bios i had prime95 yesterday still running when i got home (4+hours) and then had no blue screen or restart all night through 3-4 hours of WoW play.
Hmm.... thats kind of cool. Heres a quick test for ya on a serious note.. Sounds like either video/memory issue.
Try dropping the speed on the memory to 667.. I know what your thinking why buy 800 if your going to underclock it... but trust me and give it a shot see if the RSOD repeats. If it does... than bump back up to 800
