Okay, so I'm getting the above message from the Blue Screen of Death After some research I found the two most common solutions were either fixing bad drivers, or replacing RAM sticks.

However when I do get this message, any game that I was running at the time continues to run in the background; I can hear the game continue playing out as if nothing happened at all, despite the fact I'm staring down the Blue Screen of Death. Can I safely assume this means the problem is solely related to my video card and drivers, rather than RAM issues? Or can stuff like this happen with bad RAM, too?

Updating drivers is free other than your time, so that would be the first thing to do

Download and do a Memtest86 to see whether you have a bad RAM.

Most commonly (IME) these errors are related to driver issues. Since the game continues to play but you can't see it, I'd suspect the video drivers first.

BUT, since memory is a significant component of this error, it's possible that memory is a problem also. Most common memory problems are RAM, pagefile (virtual memory) and video RAM.
