GPU keeps crashing when gaming but not in all games

This all started about a week ago when I was playing Deep Rock Galactic with my friends and out of nowhere the game just started crashing. Looking in event viewer every crash was followed by this event: "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." It would crash in less than a minute most of the time. I thought it was an issue with just that game but unfortunately when I tried to boot up Star Citizen the next day I had the same issue. I would load in but after about a minute I would crash. So I then thought this was an issue with all games now and that certainly seemed to be the case as again Sea of Thieves had the same issue, but then I tried Overwatch. Overwatch runs perfectly fine and never crashed. I'm running all my games at max settings and get 100+ fps in all of them, so its not like Overwatch is hitting my GPU less. In troubleshooting I have done the following:

-Updated graphics drivers
-Run games on DX11 and DX12

-Clean install of graphics drivers

-Putting windows into Ultimate performance power mode (lol)

-Running GPU without an overclock

 

My next steps are to update the bios and the reseat the GPU and the RAM. If anyone has anything else that they can think to try I would be all ears as it is looking like I might need a new GPU. My PC specs are below and was built in late 2019*.

 

OS: Windows 10 (19044.1706)

CPU - R7 5800X* (Originally a 3900X but that CPU died :P)

GPU: MSI RTX 2080Ti Gaming X Trio

Motherboard: Gigabye Aero X570

RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB 4 x 8GB, 3600MHz

PSU: Corsair RM 850X

 

Thanks in advance!

Update: After a bios update it seems to be behaving itself. I will update if things change 😄

I have been having a similar issue with the display driver crashing.  I am on a fresh install of windows with a new drive, newly installed games, newly installed drivers, new cables, new cpu, new motherboard, new power supply... crashing at it was before I upgraded everything except the 1080ti I've been using since 2016.  
What are the chances that the issue may be the SOC and that I may just need a new GPU?  I've never overclocked the card but it may have run hot due to fan control software not running properly.
Just looking for your opinion before I buy a new GPU.
