Hello, for Christmas I recieved a XFX - Hard Swap Edition AMD Radeon RX 480 RS 8 GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card, and ever since installing, I have been crashing on any high demanding games such as Overwatch, the Division, and Dark Souls 3. When the crash happens my primary monitor goes some random solid color and the second monitor usually goes white.

I have tried various other drivers but I still crash. I just upgraded my ram and the PSU to the ones listed below and I'm still experiencing the crashes. I tried changing some of the settings in the radeon wattman as that fixed it for some people in other posts I've found but did not fix it for me. My previous graphics card was a R7 260X which I did not crash on. My cousin ran the rx 480 in his pc and it did not crash when he ran 3D mark.
