PC Crashing Randomly - Mostly When Playing Boderlands 2.

Hello, so recently I have noticed my PC has been crashing more and more frequently. It happens primarily when I play borderlands two as that is the game I have been playing this past week. It happens completely randomly, I could play for 15 mins and it crashes or 2 hours. The crash usually makes the screen go a random colour, white, blue, pink and there is a buzzing noise through my headset. I then have to hard restart the system. Rarely, when im playing the screen will go black, then I can hear the audio starting to buzz and i can CTRL ALT DEL to stop it from crashing and then I get the notification saying my display driver has stopped working. I have tried numerous things to solve this, reading multiple threads. I shall list the steps I have taken below.

Using DDU to remove and re-install nvidia drivers.
Stress testing CPU with prime95
Stress testing GPU with OCCT, Furmark
Updating all my drivers
Editing the Timeout Detection and Recovery through this - "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista
Re-installing realtek HD audio drivers
updating directx
memtest

It seems to mainly happen when I play borderlands but has crashed twice while browsing the net. I have played numerous games in past weeks and it has only crashed with smite once and borderlands the rest. I have also noticed my audio will cut out for a split second across the entire PC (through my headset), so it will be as if its turned off for a split second and then it comes back if that makes sense. I think that could be related to Realtek Audio Drivers.

During one of the crashes the pc restarted itself and created a dump file. Upon reading the dump file through BlueScreenView the files affected were: dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys and nvlddmkm.sys.

I have attached my zip as described in the posting instructions. If there is anything else I can provide you with to help me let me know.

Thanks.
