Bsod While Playing Games

Recently I built my first gaming pc and I have occasionally been getting the BSOD and I don't know what to do about it. It doesn't happen every time I launch a game it just happens randomly sometimes hours into a session and weeks apart from each other. It doesn't seem to depend on how demanding the game is, it has happened on games that are less demanding like torchlight 2 and on games like nba 2k13 several times. I have ran memtest overnight and found no errors and have ran a error check on my hard drive and found no errors. I have uninstalled all of the ati/amd drivers and files on my computer and reinstalled the latest drivers and Catalyst Control Center and I am still experiencing BSOD. I have not done any overclocking on the system either. I am afraid it is a hardware issue but I don't know how to test to see if that the issue. Any advice/solutions/help regarding my problem would be so greatly appreciated,

This is the error report I get after:

Just FYI, a successful Memtest doesn't really prove your RAM is good but a bad test does help to point out if it is faulty.

However your DMP file points to the video driver (atikmdag.sys) which is common in video intensive games like DayZ that you were playing. Get the latest driver from and install the driver only, without the Catalyst Control Center.
