r9 380 driver crashing since purchase

Okay so I'll start this off by saying I have been a long time amd customer and never had too many issues with a graphics card. I built a new machine a little bit ago and was very excited to see what the MSI r9 380 gaming 4g could do...but I have had nothing but trouble with this card since the purchase. I started noticing issues when playing Fallout 4 came out but I just assumed it was the typical bethesda release problems, but then I started playing other games that my old 4-5 year old card had no issue running at all and had constant driver crashes which sometimes led to my monitors completely going black. I dealt with it for awhile but this most recent set of drivers has made it unbearable. I have been playing ds1 and ds2 in preparation for ds3 but have had nothing but crashes every 30ish minutes which require a full reboot to fix since my monitors go black. I don't even know how many hours I put into looking up solutions (which none have helped even a little) but I really am regretting going with amd right now especially with all these amazing games coming out in 2016. Has AMD addressed these issues at all? Is there a solution I am missing or is this card just not very good?

 

Oh and I did go back to the 15.11 drivers but I still do get the same type of crashes
