Crashing and BSODs?

Recently I've been getting a lot of crashes BSODs while gaming. It only seems to happen while playing certain games but it has been known to rarely occur on any of them. For instance, World of Tanks seems to be the only one it consistently happens on. I tried toning down the graphical settings but to no avail, I've even tried under-clocking my GPU to see if that might be the problem again it yielded no results. I've read that it could be a crappy PSU dying but I highly doubt it because the reviews of my power supply say it should be more than adequate for my setup and is of high quality components. I also get AMD Display Driver has stopped working (again on World of Tanks most often but can appear on anything BF3, League of Legends, etc. etc.) I'm including all parts of my rig that could possible play a role in the issue. I also have tried switching positions of the games from my SSD to my HDD and vice versa no changes. I also have monitored temperatures of my graphics card and CPU so I doubt its over heating, they stay well within normal operating range for full load. I also have the latest drivers and catalyst profiles and have tried fresh installs. Any ideas?

did you check on the games if they made any bug fix,also use this to read minidump files and report result back http://www.resplendence.com/whocrashed


No it isn't the games fault because many friends of mine do not have these issues whatsoever. But I'll check the minidump when it happens. I'm off to see if I can get it to happen as it seems to occur at random intervals.
