Question 2060 keeps crashing on games

Mar 25, 2021


I've had my 2060 for about 2 years now and had a problem for about a year of that time. The error is that my GPU doesn't allow me to play games with decent graphics released past like 2010. I always get the same DirectX Function error and have never been able to fix it. I have been able to play less demanding games but a lot of them crash. The games generally crash after about 20-30 mins of playing (Outside of menus). This is the error message that comes up (It's something very similar in other games). My temps sit stable at about 75 degrees C but I still crash.

Games I crash whilst playing:
-Red Dead Redemption 2
-Battlefield 1, 4 and 5
-Insurgency Sandstorm
-Rainbow Six Siege

Games that I don't crash whilst playing:
-Stardew Valley
-Payday 2
-Rocket League
-Civilization V

Things I've tried to fix it:
-Fresh installing drivers with DDU
-Searching up answers online
-Uninstalling unneeded software
-Cleaning GPU
-Refitting all fans in case

I'll be happy to answer any questions you have if it can lead to me fixing this. It really sucks to have a $400 GPU that doesn't run any good graphics game. I will be extremely grateful for anyone even attempting to help.

EDIT: Specs

RTX 2060
Ryzen 5 3600x
8Gb Corsair Vengeance
MSI Tomahawk Max
Corsair TX750M (750 Watt)
