Getting BSOD playing games

Within the past 3-4 months, I have been getting a BSOD while playing games. Originally thought my computer was overheating- CPU @ 67C, changed 2 fans & cleaned out all the dust using compressed air. Still getting the BSOD errors with a memory dump.

I am running a 64 bit windows 7 system on a desktop with AMD Athlon 6400+ dual core, 4GB ram & an Nvidia 9800 GTX+.

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. The 9800 may be overheating, or it could be a power supply issue.
  2. I had the same BSOD with my Athlon 6400+. I don't know if you built that rig yourself or not... but mine was store bought. I gave it a cleaning and swapped the stock ram but still received the BSOD. It didn't stop happening until I replaced the motherboard.
