Most games on my PC crash. They don't crash like every 10 seconds and not all the time, but I will get random crashes more than any of my PC buddies do. I'll get errors related to "D3D", or fatal errors related to my Graphics cards drivers crashing even though I always have them up to date.

Also another side note, I noticed that my games are not getting high FPS even on low settings, I dont know if my card is out of date or my processor, but Im just wondering if there is a fix or maybe a faulty device Idk.

Specs:
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Quad-core 3.5GHz
Ram: 16 GB Corsair Vengeance RGB 2x8
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
OS: Windows 10 - 64 bit
 
Are you sure its not a thermal issue on the card? Use MSI Afterburner to monitor the GPU

Have you tried completely uninstalling the NVIDIA drivers then reinstalling them? If you have I would then take it a step further and use DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) to remove all traces of the driver.

I'll start at DDU then, im not too sure about the thermal issue as i never feel my PC is hot whatsoever, but ill check into that aswel
