OK, as you've tested by buying a new card, that should be sufficient for our purposes.
As you've reinstalled Windows, the problem should be solved (if it was a driver, and if you have all necessary updates).
Should the BSOD's return, please start with these free hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
A BSOD is an error in the kernel memory space that is usually caused by a driver.
Over 90% of BSOD's are caused by this, the rest are mostly caused by hardware problems.
The crash will most often blame a driver, even if hardware is to blame.
There are occasions when it will blame hardware - but one still has to check the drivers as the line between hardware and software becomes "fuzzy" when you're working in the lower levels of the OS (which is inside the kernel memory space).
Finally, video drivers are a special case, as they operate at more levels than most drivers - usually bypasing the NT Executive (a part of the kernel) in order to directly interact with hal.dll
