Update
All was going pretty well for about 20 hours until my computer had three BSODs in quick succession... and using WhoCrashed it reveals this:

This was probably caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys (nvlddmkm+0x1D3C08)
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x64, 0xB, 0x1, 0xFFFFF88000F6EE9B)
Error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

description: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 391.35
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This bug check belongs to the crash dump test that you have performed with WhoCrashed or other software. It means that a crash dump file was properly written out.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: nvlddmkm.sys (NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 391.35 , NVIDIA Corporation).

The crash took place in a Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

This may have uncovered the true cause of the BSOD, although i'm not really sure. How would I go about fixing this? Logs included below.

Probably the PCI-E slot in which the graphics card is damaged. You have the option of moving your graphics card to another slot?

Huh, I'm really baffled as to what the issue is. I know that it's not a hardware issue, as it works perfectly on Arch Linux and W10, but I really am too lazy to swap the PCI slot, so I don't really know.

Update: Recently I decided to try and fix the issue again, as I've been getting as many as 5 BSOD's a day very frequently over the past few months. I searched online and came across Display Driver Uninstaller again, but when I ran the program it told me that I had an NVIDIA driver alongside a Radeon one which I was surprised to see considering I got a new GPU (AMD RX480), and obviously the NVIDIA uninstaller didn't remove everything. After I removed the driver yesterday evening I haven't had a BSOD since, and I'm pretty sure that the NVIDIA graphics driver is the main source of the issue. I will mark this thread solved if I haven't had a BSOD in a weeks time, so hopefully I fixed it.
