[Help] BSOD

Hey everyone,
I keep getting the blue screen of death and I was wondering what was at fault. I did a memory diagnostic check on my RAM(which found no problems), and even bought a new HDD. Still that BSOD keeps coming back. So I was wondering if I should suspect the motherboard being the root of the cause. Here's the last BSOD I got.

Log Name: System

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

pulled this from the Event Viewer.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
