Well I know that when I update my AMD drivers my screen goes black but only for a few seconds and it restores to normal, not sure what happened in your situation. Now, since you got the 320.49 drivers installed, go ahead and see if you have the same FPS drop issues and report back if you have any issues .

I hope the new drivers do improve your gaming experience and the fact you are experiencing problems when playing FF XIV doesn't surprise me as the game recently came out and you aren't the only one experiencing the fps drop issues. So all I can say for FF XIV is it should be better over time as new drivers improve performance. Have fun gaming!

The temperatures for both the CPU and GPU are perfectly acceptable .

So guys i played FF XIV about 2 hours and had no problems.(Doesnīt prove me that game still possibly could malfunction.) But just to be sure i also ran furmark again but this time on my native resolution which is ofcourse 1080p for 35mins and max temps for gpu were 74c. Can i assume now that atleast my gpu ainīt faulty?

Note i also ran the prime couple days ago fot 59mins without problem + today earlier furmark with default resolution.

Sorry for making so many questions! I appreciate your help and co-operation, thanks guys! Youīre awesome!

Here is the pic about new results...

Yes your gpu seems to be functioning perfectly normal as for FF XIV as i mentioned before it has issues that causes crashes as you are not the only one. Test other games and see if you get the driver crash again, if not then it must have been the old nvidia driver causing it.
