Hello, I upgraded my PC in November of last year from a:
Old System Spec
AMD FX 8320
AMD Ryzen 7 1700x
16GB Vengeance Ram DDR4
So my old system was appearing to bottleneck my system. (Games, since the CPU upgrade have seen an 20-40 FPS improvement). The initial idea was to upgrade my rig, future proof it, and in early 2018, upgrade the GPU to a RX Series. However due to the inflation of prices that's never happened. And I won't be able to upgrade for a while, but I'm concerned for the health of my GPU, it's will 6 years old this year. And, in recent times my web browser (Chrome, Firefox and Opera) have all been lagging in Facebook, not loading pages despite have a sufficient connection, videos have been crashing, and the player draws a green square (sometimes it glitches, and shows a part of the browser in the video player). The ITV Player spat this error out pipeline_error_read: ffmpegdemuxer: data source error (error code 2).
I have since, formatted my PC twice, installed my OS onto a new SSD that I recently invested in, installed new drivers twice. And nothing worked, since I have had this problem on several iterations of my rig, I put it down to one of the three software that I always install, Cinema4D, Adobe CC Packages and Microsoft 365. Up until I installed Adobe, everything was fine. I couldn't get a diagnoses from Adobe mainly because it's my schools, I was able to use their forum however, and I spoke to some of my friends and we all agreed it has to be the drivers conflicting in someway, or the GPU is damaged.
