Hi,
I have been experiencing a problem ever since buying and installing new Power Supply and Graphics Card from Newegg.ca. While playing video games (doesn't matter if they are new games or older games) my PC will randomly lock up (sound will stutter) and then after about 5-10 seconds, my PC restarts. It can happen within minutes of launching a game or after an hour or two. Sometimes it doesn't happen at all...

I've replaced my Power Supply with a new higher quality one in hopes that because I had cheaped out on the first one, a higher quality one would be better. It didn't solve the problem. I also uninstalled and reinstalled my graphics card to see if that would make a difference (along with the drivers) but that did not work either.

I use all my components on stock settings and I've got CoreTemp logging my temps to make sure I'm not overheating.

Windows 8.1 64-bit
Motherboard (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128565)
16 GB RAM (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220619
AMD-FX 4130 (3.80 GHz) Quad Core Processor (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113291)
AMD RAdeon R9 290 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121842)
EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W P2 (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438013)

After my most recent crash this morning, the following errors were in Event Viewer:

Really would appreciate any help I can get on this, I'm starting to run out of options here.

For the 1st screenshot, the error is the AMD GPU driver, you may try to delete it by go to the registry editor.
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SYSTEM/Controlset001/services and delete the AODdriver4.2.0 folder entry.

For the 2nd one, it is the AMD Northbridge, you may update the BIOS, or chipset driver http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/chipset?os=Windows+8.1+-+64 or maybe the MB is overheat, because it has lower VRMs for the 125W fx4130. Upgrade the MB will be the best way.

For the 3rd ( STOP 0x00000124) related to the hardware, or may be driver corruption

The 4th one (kernel power error 41) related to the PC shut down unexpectedly.

Going to try your first 2 suggestions and see what happens. I do plan to upgrade the MB if I can't get any other solution to work.

Edit: None of the suggestions above helped. The issue still occurs. :(
I no longer get the error in the first screenshot however.
