"Display Driver has Stopped Working"

I have a weird problem that may be a processor or mobo issue. The issue is that I can rarely run any games for more than 10 minutes without experiencing a crash. Also, once my computer heats up and gets going, I can't use google chrome at all. I open it and within 10 seconds my screen turns on and off and I get a message "Nvidia Display Driver has stopped working and recovered" or something like that. I was having this same issue with my gtx 760, but I just upgraded to a 770 and the problem is continuing. Here are my specs:

AMD FX-8350
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3
Sandisk Ultra Pro 64GB SSD for OS
MSI GTX 770 TF/OC 2GB
2x4gb Corsair Vengeance RAM
WD Blue 1TB HDD for games

Do you guys have any idea what is wrong with my display? I have the latest drivers from Nvidia and have already tried uninstalling GeForce Experience and doing a clean install of the drivers. Thanks for reading!

Sounds like a software problem to me. Try completely removing all drivers,"Driver Sweeper" then reinstall the latest driver. When you say your computer gets heated up, are we taking about the thermal threshold or does it just get warm from operating? It could be your filesystem, you may have to try a windows repair, worst case sceanrio, a complete reinstall.

When I say get "heated up," I'm just referring to the computer getting going. My CPU temps never go above 30F; I'm just saying the issue when browsing only occurs once the computer has "woken up" for lack of a better term.

Also, I read something in another article about trying to increase my PCIE latency in the BIOS. Does that sound like a possible fix?

I will try re installing drivers with driver sweeper right now.
