Here's the screenshot from the stress test, evened out at 80oC. And another BDOS test.

Same error as always

Code:
VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa800a3e14e0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88006b04970, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 0000000000000002, Optional internal context dependent data.
Debugging Details:
We've tried several drivers, I believe but still the same problem. If you have one or can borrow one from a friens, try a different graphics card and see if You have the same problem. The best way would be if you have someone who would swap cards with you for a day or two. That would tell you most of what you want to know. I would like to know the Manufacturer and model of your PSU. It will be on a sticker on the side of the PSU. See if you can also give me the Amps on the +12V rail. Also, go into BIOS and give me the readings for the +12V, +5V and +3.3V.

What graphics card do you have. Most of the 7900 series, from what I can find are saying a minimum of 500W, yours is 450W.

Its a 7950, so it seems its underpowered?
Any reason why it's been ok for the last few years until a couple of months ago? I've been playing the same game for the last 12 months at least.

I'm not saying that is what is causing your problems, but it is possible. But, a PSU can lose some of it's output over a few years as capacitors age. In any case I would think when running a stress test you would be pushing it pretty hard for that PSU. But again, I'm not saying that is a cause of your problems.

Ok makes sense. I don't think i have anyone i'll be able to borrow a graphics card from unfortunately, pretty much everyone i know just has a laptop instead of a desktop.
How confident are you that its related to the graphics card or PSU? Is it worth me looking to update both parts?

I'm honestly not sure about any of it. Graphics problems are almost always, Drivers, the card, the Motherboard or the PSU. There is little else involved. You've tried a few drivers with the same result, so I was making a suggestion that would be free, to confirm or deny the card and/or the Motherboard. The only way to know for sure, is to put a good known working graphics card in. I certainly wouldn't want to buy another graphics card on an 'it might be'. I would want to know for sure before buying anything. At least as sure as you can be.

I'm sorry, but when you get down to this point, there is little else to do except swapping parts to find out which one it is. Buying the parts can get pretty expensive
