P5q-e blue screen express gate freeze

Running P5Q-E with a E8400
4GB of OCZ platnum
Windows 7 prem. 64 bit
and an Nvida 8800 GTS
700W ocz power supply

Ran this same rig with an Nvdia 680sli for 2 years with absolutly no problems, never oc'd this chip or card (as the card comes oc'd stock) Then I set up with my P5Q-E and runs good with vista for a few weeks, then I start getting constant blue screens with errors like "file marked pagable is not pagable" "irql not less or equal" etc. as well as a few specific driver problems that mostly had to do with some virtual drives I was running.

A hint might be that sometimes the asus express gate won't load correctly after a crash, as well it won't always do a proper memory dump. Just started getting worse lately, every time it crashes I lose all data altered since a crash that happend about 2 weeks ago (I assume windows is auto-restoring) and it boots up in a default profile. (Though if you log out it will show my profile, boot into it and just give the the same default profile msg).

Thinking it's the mobo as this rig was perfect before hand, any ideas?

All drivers are up to date, i flashed the bios to newest version and updated video drivers
Will run mem test tonight, crashes are more frequent when gaming.
