Please try running occt to test the video card's dedicated ram:

NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT

To do this follow the tutorial from test #2 report back when your done and let us know the results.

Please run memtest86 + for 7-8 passes:

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Tip: Do this over night it may take quite some time, especially with how much ram you have.

I tried memtest overnight and during the day one time but it only made it to 5 or 6 passes
Should I try it again?

You should aim for 7-9 passes I have seen errors not appear until the 9th or 10th pass.in the mean time be sure that your video card driver is up to date, the latest driver was released March 25th and can be found here: Drivers | GeForce

I'll try memtest again, but I already installed the latest video driver after using driver sweeper on the old one.
