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.You need to reinstall windows not reset it.
So save all your data and start over.
The 980ti is still plenty for 1080p gaming
