Welp, after months of dealing with windows crashing my pc I’ve resorted to using Linux Mint 19.1. I’ve switched my drives from NTFS to EXT4 but left room to maybe install windows just for my games when I can be bothered to try again. All I wanted was a stable system and windows wasn’t havin it. lol No amount of troubleshooting helped, the symptom remained the same; a video driver crash at the most inconvient of times and after gaming for a few hours.

Posting on reddit reveiled some sort of issue with VT-D and Windows 10 but only after I deleted it. XD Something to consider when I try windows again. I’m not sure why it’d cause my problem but that’s something to explore in the future.
