Either you have a hardware issue (probably a dying hard drive or bad ram) or you didn't setup your computer correctly software wise. your hardware is as good as a Mac if not better. I say you take some time to learn about your computer and maybe find out what the problem is. You learn something and you save some money win win for you. Macs have hardware/software problems too just as often as PC.
Agreed, hardware issue or some sort of driver issue as well possibly. I would run a debugger on your memory.dmp to get more of an idea of what the system is experiencing when it bluescreens.
That said, given the reputation of those OCZ SSD drives maybe that's the cause of your BSODs.

DiMAn0684, how is that asrock z77 board working out now? any issues?
I've been running the ASRock z77 Extreme 4 for just about a year with no trouble from it. I have an i7 3770K, 32GB DDR3 1866 and plenty of drives, SSDs and other stuff hooked up to it and it's been solid as a rock. Considering its extremely high popularity and good feedback scores most places, it shouldn't come as a surprise.
Regarding your RAM question, most of the time 16GB is plenty but I have pushed my system to around 26GB when merging a number of images in to a pano. A year ago I wasn't sure how much I'd need 32GB and truth be told a good majority of the time it's overkill. That said, not too long after I built my system RAM started going up quite a bit and now it would cost me more than 2x what I paid last December for the same amount and type of memory. I'm glad I did it.
