Your UEFI/BIOS (version 0335) dates from 2014. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it. WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).
Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates. It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them. The actual number is not important. Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.
No sign of any BSOD's - but a lot of video crashes.
I'd concentrate on the video card at this point.
Start with these free hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
Start with the video tests, but finish all of them (it's OK to skip those that you've already told us about), and then let us know the results.
Have a look at this troubleshooting article: http://www.carrona.org/VideoTDR.html
Although not the same as the problems that you're experiencing, your situation is similar so it could help you out.
