    I had the chance to go through first batch of your minidumps, and five of these pointed at your nVidia driver. with error 0x117.

    STOP ("VIDEO_TDR_TIMEOUT_DETECTED") error 0x117 means that the display driver failed to respond in a timely fashion.

    Probability is, it may be a symptom of a more bigger issue, however I propose that you may go through these two suggestions:

    1. Unintall your nVidia driver, reboot your system, and run Driver Sweeper to clean out any left over driver files (you can download it from Techspot download section). Then download latest WHQL drivers and install these, see whether that stabilizes the system.

    2. Download OCCT, and stress test your graphic card (GPU + vRAM) thoroughly, if something with regard to hardware turns up it means your graphic card is failing.
