My games are suddenly crashing. Playing for like 10 minutes, game stutters then suddenly stops and crash to desktop sometimes goes to black screen and also sometimes my tv monitor changes to a lower resolution and a different refresh rate by itself (from 1080p to 480p, from 60hz to 75hz to black screen). Btw I'm using a tv as a monitor connected via hdmi. Desktop applications are fine just not in games.

So, these are my specs:
Mobo - Asus ROG Strix Z370 F Gaming
CPU - intel i5 8400
GPU - Gigabyte GTX 1050 TI 4GB OC Windforce
PSU - Corsair VS550 550W

windows 10

Ps. For those who says this gpu and cpu combo is a bottleneck, yes i agree. But my friend and some other people use this combo and it's fine they have no crash or whatsoever. 

Games I've tested:
Assassin's Creed Origins
NFS Payback
Far Cry 5 (longer gameplay before crashing)
League of Legends (crash on loading screen but fixed when i installed some of the drivers of ASUS)
Vampyr (no crashes)
Torchlight 2 (no crashes)
Nier Automata

I tried a lot of things. I googled and found solutions like audio output problems of HDMI on TV are in conflict with the output sound of the pc. So i disabled some audio drivers that are in conflict. I also found disabling the turbo mode via BIOS may solve the problem. Tried them but the crash still goes on. 

What I've also done is updated/reinstalled the:
Nvidia driver using DDU
Intel integrated gpu
Audio drivers
Motherboard drivers
Flashed BIOS version

Also I've run tests on my CPU and GPU with prime95 and furmark with no errors. Temps are normal.

What can you suggest i do? Please help me solve it before the release of Monster Hunter World. I'm guessing it has something to do with the TV as my monitor because it changes resolution and refresh rate before going full black screen then reboot is the only solution (I don't have a pc monitor yet so i can't verify it this way). Or is it the nvidia setting under display settings. Or audio settings. Or turbo boost mode of the motherboard and cpu. I don't know so this is me asking the pros. 

Thanks in advance  :)

Try downgrading the Graphics driver, I know it seems like a stupid thing to do but it worked for me once I had an issue like this.

Update: tried to run those games in my Intel GPU, and there were no crashes. So it goes down to the gtx 1050 ti having problems.

What i don't understand is that i have tested my GPU with 3dmark and other software with zero crashes and zero errors.

So what to do now? Is it a problem with nvidia settings? Or gpu doesnt have enough power from psu? Or does it have to do with "XMP" profile of the ram?
