XP Bluescreens - Minidumps

This is for a Windows XP SP2 computer with an EVGA 780i, two 8800GTs, and an Auzentech Prelude.

System is getting blue screens of death opening certain programs, typically related to audio.  Suspect a problem with the sound card but it also did it with the onboard sound, so now I'm confused.

I hope something can be gained from analysis of the minidumps:
