A graphics card would definitely help with the Blue Screen issues (and a new PSU if you buy a graphics card). A HD 6570 would probably be fine, there's no need for anything too expensive if all you do is play games like STO and Shogun. The rest of your hardware is probably fine although rather out of date.
Thanks for that. Is the HD 6570 much better than the HD 3800 series? I suppose a better question would be how high I could put my graphics settings on STO with it.
