Default Bsod

hi guys, i have been having some trouble with my computer lately. i frequently am getting the blue screen of death (i have win XP). i have gotten a variety of error messages each time, but mostly "driver IRQL less or not equal" and "page fault in non paged area." this happens most often when i am playing games or right when i start the computer up.

at first i thought it might be because the fan on my video card has been broken and it was overheating. so i just got a new video card and psu and the BSOD is still happening. i am thinking it is now narrowed down to either the ram or motherboard but who knows. any ideas on what is causing this?

memory is normally a likely cause. download memtest86 and run that program for 3 passes. if it fails and returns errors, you know your problem.
