hello, norestneeded I'll try to help you with your problem, if I can. You had 1 dump file in the files you uploaded. I would like you to do a couple of things for me please.

Also, I am sure you uninstalled the AMD drivers before installing the 970, but please follow this tutorial to get rid of all we can get and select AMD Display drivers only. Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Next, I would like you to reinstall tour Nvidia drivers the way this tutorial describes and install the Display Driver and PhysX driver only. NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Next, please open an elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

If you have any questions, please ask. I don't mind answering questions or explaining anything. Also, just so you know, if you post in a new post I will be notified. If you edit and add information in a previous post I will not be notified. So, please always make a new post so I will be aware of new information.

That is your Video card driver. More specifically, you had a Video TDR error. That meang the drive did not crash and recover. It crashed but did not recover in the time Windows Allows for it to recover. A TDR error is a Time Delay and Recovery Error .
