Summary of Issue
System crash on launch of Apex Legends and intermittently in Doom Eternal. I have put the 6800XT through it's paces in 1440p/4k so I don't believe this to be a power issue. I have run Watch Dogs Legion, Crysis Remastered, Battlefield V, and Overwatch wihout issue. I'm thinking this is likely a driver issue in certain games
Edit: Also crashes in... Amazon Prime Video...?

I have a 5600x and a gtx 1070 - crashing on startup of apex legends, and ... netflix in the browser.
I disabled hardware acceleration in the browser (firefox) and netflix no longer crashes.
Note that a OS reinstall didn't fix.
I just wanted to give a tip.
If the computer crashes while playing games and you own a vr headset or have an extra screen then disconnect both so you only have your primary monitor connected.
Before my non vr games crash the computer all the time, but if i unplug my vr pimax 8kx then the computer stop crashing.
