PC Just Doesn't Run Smoothly

I'm at a loss people of LTT. My computer has pretty decent parts in it but they seem to not like each other (i.e. don't communicate correctly all the time). Is there possibly an issue with having an AMD processor and an Nvidia Graphics Card? I thought originally it was a bad graphics card, which was not the case, as it was replaced. I then thought it was my old Storage Drive (which I replaced), but early indications say that was not the root issue either. I get a blue screen more frequently than I'd like (sometimes as frequent as once per day, sometimes more). The most common Blue Screen is Video_Scheduler_Internal_Error (I read it could be bad drivers?). I also frequently get black screens as if the computer blinked.


Another huge issue is when I'm trying to play video games, especially when I'm playing Ark: Survival Evolved. The game is almost guaranteed to crash, almost always from a fatal error: Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D being lost. Other games are constantly trying to re-load themselves, from Runescape on lowest settings to Star Wars the Old Republic on High Settings. Those go to their respective loading screens and sometimes take a full minute to work themselves out, sometimes repeated back-to-back-to-back.


I love building computers but I've never been good at diagnostics. Any help would be oh so appreciated (especially before I go and buy more parts!). I will update this post later this afternoon when I'm at home on my computer so I could attach crash files or other documents, if necessary.
