Scenario: Just built a new rig for gaming. After a few moments of normal usage, programs in windows appear entirely as black windows. They are responsive and I can click and interact with things normally within them, but they appear completely black. This has happened so far with Chrome, Steam, and discord.

Additionally, when playing Resident Evil 2 remake (the only game I've extensively played), the game has crashed on at least 3 or 4 occasions with the "Fatal application error / The GPU device instance has been suspended"
Things I've tried:
-Ran memtest86+ with no errors (2 passes)
-Underclocked the MSI factory OC from 1750 MHz to 1465 MHz (MSI afterburner)
-Rolled back AMD gpu drivers with DDU (20.4.1 -> 20.2.2)
-Tested GPU memory with OCCT's GPU memtest - This crashed and rebooted the PC the first time. I ran it two subsequent times for 3-4 minutes with no errors on each.
-Ran Video Memory Stress Test with no errors
-Furmark for around 2-3 minutes
-Ran 3DMark's Time Spy and looped Fire Strike for around an hour; no errors.
-Finally, I did a fresh install of Windows. The problem still persists.
At this point, the only other thing I can think of is testing the GPU in the second PCIe slot. I'd test it with another GPU but I don't have any other right now. BIOS is up to date. I'm inclined on just RMAing the damn thing. Any pointers? Thanks so much for any help.
