Graphics Display Drivers crashing during games.

So I recently just got a new graphics card, and it was working perfectly fine for the first month, no issues at all, and just recently, about a week or two ago, in almost ALL of my PC games (That's over 100 games), my drivers crash after about 5 - 30 minutes of game play.

What would cause this to happen?
Could the card be faulty, or could it be something else in my system?

Here are some things I have done to try and fix the issue:
I have rolled back to an older and stabler driver version (314.22)
I've done a clean install of Windows 8.
Disabled the sound card within the graphics card
uninstalled MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision X

I have also ran a stress test, and that worked perfectly fine with no issue, I ran the test for an hour.

Here are my PC Specs if needed:

OS: Windows 8 64-Bit

CPU: AMD FX-4100

RAM: 8.00GB Dual=Channel DDR3 @ 534MHz

Motherboard: ASRock 960GM-GS3 FX

Graphics: 2048MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST (EVGA)

  1. This may sound dumb, but make sure the card is fully plugged into the slot, and well supported (not sagging). I had a very similar problem where my GPU's drivers would crash constantly. Turned out it was because my card was sagging in the slot and making a bad connection. Propping it up resolved the issue
