My computer has been crashing for a long time now once per day when I play games. I've gotten a new motherboard and CPU recently yet it still crashes. I also got a new case to prevent overheating and it still crashes. The only things that haven't changed are my memory and GPU. I've been speculating for a long time now that the cause of the crashes are from my GPU, but I am not sure. Does anyone know the reason to my computer crashing everyday when I play games? Is it just AMD drivers being bad?

Put a copy of memtest86 on a flash stick.

Boot the stick and let it run.....no errors allowed.

Did you reinstall windows and mobo drivers after this new mobo?

I did reinstall mobo drivers after this new one. I didn't try reinstalling windows though, I just updated it. I'll try out the memtest86 soon. Should I try reinstalling windows as well?

Yup, gold standard is a full reinstall with a different motherboard. The time you save by not doing that is lost when the first time you have a serious problem, since you want to eliminate it as an issue. It's not designed to be a modular OS that you just slap in new machines; it's more of an organ transplant.

You might want to reinstall windows just to get it out of the mix.
I did memtest86 which resulted in no errors, and reinstalled windows. The windows reinstallation was weird because after I reinstalled windows it was corrupted and the only application I was able to use was CMD. I just factory reset the computer to fix it though. I haven't crashed so far or ran into any other problems, but I'll let you know if anything happens. Thanks!

@Bob.B @DSzymborski So I did end up doing what you guys told me to do which was to run memtest86 and reinstall windows. I still am experiencing crashing however despite running memtest with no errors and reinstalling windows.
