My friend has a computer that he built himself, and has recently been experiencing the BSOD, mainly when playing games. The game freezes for a bit, and sometimes the graphics get distorted, then the BSOD comes up. It talks about a physical memory mini dump, and something associated with C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini081908-01.dmp

His computer includes:

Asus P5K3 Deluxe Mobo
3 G Core 2 Duo Processor
2 G Corsair DDR3 RAM
Seagate 500 G Hard Drive
KFA2 nVidia 8800 GT Overclocked 512 MB Video Card

He's done a memory scan and says that nothing is wrong with the memory.

Could it be a video card issue? He recently updated his drivers, but the problem still occurs.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan
