So your ram test went smoothly so i'll point the finger at the GPU I guess the Graphics Card has had a spat at the computer and shut itself off.

Here are some free diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

You'll see several video tests there, start with them.

 

As for the reports that blueelvis asked for - they aren't just for BSOD's.  They contain a lot of information that can help in diagnosing these problems.
