BSOD - what is likely cause?

My son's new purpose-built games machine (Athlon triple-core, 8GB memory, 2 x 32GB SSD and 2 x 150GB drives configured in RAID, GTS250, Windows 7 Ultimate) regularly BSODs, but at random times in random applications. The guy who built it suggests updating the NVIDIA driver. He bleives it's sufficiently cooled. Before I go about looking at upgrading/replacing the driver - what are any other possible causes of BSODs I could look at? Is there any point in sharing the memory dump?

For less than £200 quid its fine, I just find the set up odd 2 32GB'd SSD's in Raid 0 and then 2 150GB HDD's in Raid 0 also. But as I said for a couple of hundred quid it is fine.
