you have got a lot of BSODs after installing the new GPU. 9 within two days. And those are of different bugcheck code, but they all are saying one thing in common, memory corruption.

No driver is being identified as failing, even not the display driver. So we have to consider it as a hardware issue.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Let us know the results.
BugCheck A, {ffffda800a934520, 2, 0, fffff800030658b8}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiRestoreTransitionPte+c8 )

BugCheck 1A, {403, fffff680000da3c0, de0000020d1b5867, dffff680000da3c0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+3211c )

Tests comfirm

Stress test on video card went well. memtest86 got 21 errors in the first 2 passes. felt no need to continue further testing as I figured this confirmed it to be bad ram. thanks for that. used windows memory test before it turned up nothing.

Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

Follow the Part: three - If you have errors: of How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+

Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

BTW, if you like, you may replace the RAM kit with a new one, without doing all those tests to identify which stick is bad.
