Question GTA V err_gfx_d3d_init crash

Aug 1, 2020
In GTA V my game freezes and gives me err_gfx_d3d_init about once a day, always at very inconvenient times in missions etc, primarily it seems like it happens when an event is triggered, like when I shoot the guard that turns out to have the access key, but it also happens randomly. Only in GTA Online it seems.

Tried: Reinstalled the game, Reduced overclocks, Disabled all overlays, Turned off Vsync, Turned off Tessellation, Changed to DirectX 10.1, Reinstalled the two DirectX files in GTA V's directory, Reinstalled Geforce Experience, Reinstalled GPU drivers, Changed pagefile size from 4gb to 8gb
