I’ve recently upgraded a lot of the components from my first gaming pc but since doing so my games keep crashing after a few minutes or just on startup.

I have an ASUS Prime Z390A Motherboard, an Intel I7 7700K and 16GB of Corsair Vengence RGB Pro at 3200 MHz.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

when it crashes what happens. does the game just exit and it goes back to the windows desktop, does the whole PC shutdown or does it just blue screen?

I don’t think I did, how do you do that? Sorry not really very good at this
If you had done it, you would know that you did it.
Like..."I ate dinner last night. Did I cook it or did someone else?"

Since there is ambiguity...you didn't.

A full OS reinstall requires some prep on your part.
You'll be starting from a blank slate. A bare OS.
You need all the drivers for your hardware, you need to document all your username/passwords for all your software, and all the sites you visit.
You need to save all of your personal docs to some other physical storage device.

Stuff like that.
