I experienced my second bsod in two weeks and I am starting to worry, here is the dump from the latest crash, can anyone gather any interesting information here?

In the hopes of preventing this in the future I have installed some new drivers: video, mouse .. and removed some software by ASUS AI Suite.

When the crash occurred I was running the following applications: postgres 9.2x64 server, pgadmin, VLC player w/ opengl rendering, world of warcraft(directx), google chrome, SWTOR launcher/downloader, outlook, virtual box w/ w7(active)

Acording to the information provided, it seems its a memory problem (RAM, main memory, L2, Video RAM, ...) when it tries to read it. The failure happens when either the SO or program tryies to read a zone of memory and it doesn't find it, either because its out of bounds or because the zone is empty and should contain data.

If the failure happens when you run all of the above programs, then it maybe be a problem with the RAM, since you might be allocating a lot of it and the physical RAM might have a zone with problems, hence the failure. You can check this part by doing a Memtest for several hours and check if there's any error on the tests.
