Graphical bug??? I have no idea how to explain this

For over a year now, I have been having fps drops in every game I play. Then a few months ago, I started to get a graphical bug in my screen that I really have no way of explaining this. 

 

Then after this happened, around the same time I had a blue screen of death with the file name nvlddmkm.sys failing apparently. Fixed it already, pretty easy to fix, but it came back 2 days ago. I'm playing SMITE, and mid to late game, I start to see this graphical bug problem on my second monitor. Then like 5 minutes later, as I alt tab, I get a blue screen of death with the SAME file failing again. Yesterday as well, I'm playing Hearthstone, and every time I go into a game and out of a game, the game goes unresponsive every time. All this corresponds to my GPU. Do I need to change my GPU or is their another fix around this? Any help is appreciated.

 

Always have Wallpaper Engine Open

I play:

TF2

LOL

Overwatch

SMITE

Paladins

That looks like a VRAM error based on my experience with intense artifacting. The result of the two most memorable instances were a slightly overdone OC and bad game engine stability, and the other was an ancient Quadro card that went to live in the great PC in the sky about 2 weeks later after progressively worse artifacting.

 

There was a third that happened fairly recently that ended up being a driver released that was flying a little too close to the sun

So what do you think, is this a simple fix with changing a computer spec? Because I have been having fps drops for over a year now and nothing I've tried fixes it.

I would say:

-Run a clean install of drivers, most recent first, then a few months back if it doesn't work.

-try running at complete stock or dropping down mem and core speeds a little to see if that helps. 

 

 

Based on that error code, it looks like wonky drivers that windows didn't like and were determined to be unstable.

Well I have already factory reset this computer twice, the one that takes longer btw. And I reinstalled windows 10 and 11 completely. So maybe the memory core speeds are gonna have to be lowered.

You mentioned that it's been happening for a year, have you changed cables as a troubleshooting step?

Have you tried re-seating it in the PCIE slot?

Pretty sure s/he meant HDMI cable, or whatever display cable you are using.

Although if you do have spare PSU cable that comes with the PSU (not other PSU's), may as well.

I mean I was using an HDMI cable for most of me using this computer then started using a DisplayPort cable after getting my new monitor.

The error started before or after you switch to DP ?

Before I switched to DP, but in reality it was when I got this computer.
