I have a RX-480 with 8192M or RAM running driver version 17.4.2 (the most recent). It has 8192M of DDR5 memory. My computer is running Win 10 64 bit on a Intel I7-7700K (4.2GHz). I am using a Gigabyte Z270X-Ultra Gaming motherboard with 8GB of DDR4 RAM.
Overwatch crashes after a varying amount of gameplay. I initially had Graphics Driver Version 17.2.1 installed and it would take 5-10 minutes of Overwatch play for the screen to go "blank" (all grey). I upgraded to the most recent driver hoping the problem would be fixed. Now I can play for about 20 minutes before the graphics card freezes and the screen "goes blank". Only a system reset will fix the problem. This is a brand new system (just built it). All settings are default on the BIOS and Graphics card. I am running at the max resolution 1920x1080. Any help or insight you could provide would be appreciated
I have now tried installing drivers back to 16.9 without luck. I get 20-30 minutes of game play and the game grey screens my PC. Reset button is the only option that will work.

Maybe try adjusting game settings tweaktown.com/guides/7808/overwatch-graphics-performance-tweak-guide/index.html
Could also be too many startup/minimized apps./webpages, etc... running.
Weak psu (make/model ?).
