You need to reinstall windows not reset it.
So save all your data and start over.
The 980ti is still plenty for 1080p gaming
I both reset and reinstalled windows, a day after each other. This, as I am realizing now, has been an issue with this card since the day I bought it. I always thought it was my Xeon processor bottlenecking but that isn't it, I've upgraded processors, MOBO, HDD to SSD, and ram.
 
She's gone bois. Started crashing every program, even task manager. Had to buy a prebu....a preb.......pre..built..still won't get here for another month or two but, I need a computer I'm a 3D artist. Gonna try flashing the bios like kamenrusev suggested and then baking it. Also, fun fact, turns out the reason I got certain games like Valorant to play at 4k was, you hardly need a GPU to run it in the first place. A+ to Riot because Valorant and League are the only 2 3D games I've found I can run on just my CPU. Good frames too. Thanks everyone.
Have you tried underclocking it a bit? If the card is unstable, lowering its clocks might keep it at least usable for a while.

So you have done a fresh install then added drivers and tested, before doing anything else?
