When I play the game, EVE Online. At random times the comp will crash with the blue screen of a BAD_POOL_HEADER with Technical Information: STOP:0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x86EA2D38, 0x86EA2E78, 0x0A28001). Another thing has happened when I play the game, Titan Quest. The blue screen thing happens again only this time it says something about an Infinite loop. I know this has to do with my new graphics card, NVIDIA Geforce 7300, because this hadn't happened until I installed it. Can you help?

BAD_POOL_HEADER errors are usually but not always hardware related. It can be anything from an underpowered PSU to dodgy device drivers to even a conflict with another device on the computer. In your case you could have a dodgy card.

So would getting a new one most likely fix it?

Well if the problems only started when you put that new card in it points to either that card being faulty or an underpowered PSU. You should be able to send the card back for a replacement.
