5700 XT Hardware Failure?

PC Specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

MOBO: B450 TOMAHAWK MAX

RAM: 2x 16 GB 3000MHz

PSU: EVGA Supernova 550 G3

 

I'm not sure where to start or what information I need to attach, but here is some background information.

 

I'm an inexperienced PC builder, but I made this PC using the Gigabyte 5700 XT as the GPU. Everything runs fine, but there are some games I've been playing where my PC freezes, goes black, then either becomes unresponsive or sends me to my desktop with the game having been terminated. Examples of the games that crash are Escape from Tarkov and Path of Exile. Other games like GTFO, League of Legends, and Tomb Raider haven't caused the PC to crash. 

 

This leads me to check the reliability history, and it comes up as a hardware error - Live Kernel Event 141.

 

I'm not sure what to do. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the GPU drivers and the software that comes along with it. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
