BSOD in game, same aproximate location every time. Want to make sure it's not my drivers/etc.

Please review the small crash dump if you get a chance. Would like to find out more about what is causing this issue.

It happens in the same game in the same approximate location every time. But it started happening only since i got my new computer. Everything else (other games etc) seem rock solid/stable.

Thank you.
