Every demanding game crashes to desktop with no error when trying to start the game.

Hello,

About two days ago, basically out of nowhere, every "demanding" game I tried to play crashed after launching it, and it's still present today.
The games I've tested so far are Battlefield V, Farcry 5, Rocket League and Hitman 2, all let me browse the main menu, but as soon as I press play and they start to load, they crash almost instantly. Although Rocket League worked fine interestingly enough, it's definitely far from as demanding as the other listed though.
I've tried everything I can think of. Such as resetting the overclock on my RAM and CPU. I also tried disabling memory compression, virtual memory and downloading an older graphics driver to no avail. I even tried another graphics card.

I monitored my pc while playing both with task manager and MSI Afterburner, but nothing looked out of the ordinary

So I honestly have no idea what this issue is caused by, although the only thing I can think of is either something to do with windows or else I might have missed something.

Specs:
I7 8700K (set to 5GHz)
RTX 2080
16GB DDR4 3466MHz (set to XMP 3200MHz)
Corsair HX1000i 1000 Watt (much much more than enough)
Windows 10 Pro version 1803

I just ran a standard test with Windows own memory diagnostics tool, no errors though.

Alright, so I tried to reset the CMOS. That helped a little bit, with Hitman 2 now being playable. Battlefield 5 still didn’t work though, and I didn’t try Farcry.

After that I went in and tried overclocking my system again. This surprisingly helped. Hitman 2 is still playable, I was able to play Battlefield V for 30 seconds, and Farcry 5 for about 5 seconds, before they crashed.

This is incredibly weird imo. I haven’t experienced anything like this before.

I should add this build is only around 4 months old, and the graphics card is around 1 week old.

Didn't work sadly. This time it was arguably worse. Since FarCry 5 just black screened, and I had to restart.

Apparently, Photoshop crashes as well, although it gives me an error with the display driver as the issue. So I'll probably try doing the DDU process again.

Alright, I tried DDU once more in safe mode, then installed the drivers I downloaded without an internet connection. Still doesn't work.

Just tried Black Ops 4. Says out of video memory, even though it barely uses 1.2GB.

Edit: Now it cycles between not enough video memory, and regular memory.

Well, after reinstalling Windows 10, which I was trying to avoid, it finally works.

Thanks, drivinfast247 for helping though.
