The graphics driver is irrelevant until the OS is mostly loaded.  If it's not even powering up to a visible display then the problem is elsewhere.

 

To source the latest driver it's usually best to go direct to nVidia.  But some cards have specialist drivers or accompanying software especially the modern ones with auto-overclocking.  In the case of those ones it can be a good idea to use the OEM software, then if it's not kept up to date by them go to nVidia for the newer driver, the accompanying bloatware will usually be a seperate uninstall anyway so you can get rid of the driver and put the newer one on without disturbing it.

You're running one card in one pcie x16 slot so it should be at x16. Unless the faulty other slot is tripping and switching on dual mode.

Can i put my sound card directly above GPU? cause im noticing a buzzing noise when playing games, wondering if it would stuff the gpu up being so close?

Chances are it's the other way around.  DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort signalling is digital, though DVI will usually provide analog as well to support traditional DE15 plugs via an adaptor.

Soundcards are usually analog by default (3.5mm or RCA jacks), though plenty have digital output as well, by means of SPDIF optical, Coax out, and in some cases piggybacked over HDMI or DP via PCIe bus to the videocard.

 

Traditional advise was to keep the sound card isolated, well worth a shot.  Also it's good to have free space around the video card to allow better cooling.

Ideally you don't put cards near the hot GPU, the other cards aren't as heat tolerant.

In the bios, try and find options for "Spread Spectrum" and try to enable, or disable them and see if it changes anything.

 

It sounds like you're battling electro magnetic interference, which is meant to be fixed by spread spectrum, but can often be made worse....

This fixed it., It was either that or a bad OC.
I found in the bios options for increasing the CPU power from 100% 120% 130% 140% for OCing.
I changed it to 130% even tho i used asus MB auto OC you think it would of changed that itself.
Enabled Spread Spectrum
Works properly now, ty

(Edit: there is still a buzzing noise in the sound when i play games though, from sound card being too close to gpu i s'pose)

Probably.

 

You can eliminate that risk by buying and testing a cheap external (USB) soundcard :)
