Sounds like hardware. Power supply, RAM, or video card would be the most suspect with RAM at the top of the list because of the seemingly random error codes.
Does the machine blue screen when running in Safe Mode?

Download the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and create the cd as outlined in the Quick Start Information on the download page. Boot your machine using this disk and let it run at least 4 complete passes. If you see any failures, it may indicate a bad RAM module.
Also download Speedfan and install it. Run this application to monitor the machine's temperatures and voltages. If you can attach a screenshot of the Speedfan window with the "Readings" tab selected, it may help us to see what's going on in respect to the power supply and cooling. If you are unable to provide a screen capture, report back with what temperatures are shown after the machine has run for a bit.
The fact that the problem seems to happen when the machine is under load, heat is starting to sound more like the culprit.

Installing this application will add "Copy Image to CD" to your right click context menu. Simply right click on the downloaded memory diagnostics file and select that option to start the burning program. You should be able to burn this disk using the default settings.
