    I had a feeling this would happen. Got a blue screen on my fresh install, it points towards different things this time but I still think the base cause is my gpu.

    note - I only have today to decide whether I'm sending it back or not, I need to contact the seller tomorrow if I am.

    Do it fast. They normally only give you 30 days. By chance you had crossfire going with your old cards. Do you have 2 Nvidia cards now and if so is SLI setup/enabled in the uefi ? I don't personally know how to do the SLI in the uefi yet. I'll figure it out in a few months when I get a 2nd GeForce 760. Also, if you do have 2, did you configure them in the Nvidia control panel for sli. I don't currently know how to do that one either. It'll also be figured out later, when I need to use it.

    Another bsod, I did a fresh install of windows earlier on my main drive and have been using it normally. My browser was being a bit glitchy and my start menu wasn't functioning properly (using startisback) so I went to click restart and got this bsod right as my pc was about to restart.

    It could be the StartIsBack program. Uninstall it and try either Start8 (Stardock $5.00) Start8 Start menu for Windows 8. Bring the Windows 8 Start menu back. . I know it works in both 8 & 8.1 as I use it. You can also try ClassicShell which is free. Classic Shell - Start menu and other Windows enhancements StartIsBack could be incompatible with 8.1.

    Well, I did download the 8.1 version of startisback =/
    I'll uninstall it anyway.
    I have an extremely short window to figure out the problem, so I will probably send my graphics card back by the looks of it

    - I also ram memtest overnight, 4 passes (a few % off of 5 passes) and 0 problems.

    I give up, this is impossible. Sending the card back and keeping my trusty 6790's for now, although it'd be interesting to still know what the problem was, as I do want to upgrade to a 7xx card again in the future.

    One last thing. Submit your memry dump to the following forum. They have people that know how to read/diagnose memory dump files. Windows Forums Join and then post it on the Blue Screen Of Death link. Within a few hour's, you'll know the exact cause.
