The last few have been really s***...my driver crashes in games often and Gsync is messed up.

The only issue I'm having with my drivers is that I can't play one of my games in full screen anymore, it's only borderless and and windowed. I'm using 390.65 with an EVGA 1050ti overclocked. Other then that my games have been running pretty solid honestly. I never have driver issues except when I was using Xfire 7850's for 4k in 7/2014, that was a nightmare.

I don't have a gsync monitor though for what it's worth.

Your GPU overclocked, could be that.

Gsync is so good. Stupid ass premuim though. At least my monitor is a 3 year warranty.

I brought it down when I found out it kept crashing Subnautica. Ok its overclocked but its kind of redundent since its set as easy OC. Hardly a difference.

Yup! I'm on r384 because I was getting constant TDR errors regardless of what I was doing. Sometimes, the driver couldn't recover properly, too, and the system, would require a restart to stop artifacting.
r384 is mostly fine except issues with Gsync, nvcp lockups, and possibly some issues with firefox.

Do they really cost 300 on average? I wasn't big on Nvidia and only read a few articles about gsync, but all it does is reduce tearing right? Does it improve framerates or something? Right now I'm just looking at a 1080p ips monitor but if gsync is worth it, I may consider it.

If you have a GeForce card and play games in FullScreen mode, it eliminates tearing and input lag and mitigates or eliminates some types of stutter.
afaik, Gsync displays typically have better binned panels but ymmv. They cost anywhere from $50 to $300 more than freesync equivalents, typically more for higher end displays, so it's not just a flat cost added to the monitor.

Here's a really good video that explains the differences between Fast Sync, G-Sync and V-Sync.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L07t_mY2LEU

Any option is to reduce screen tearing, however each one has a different amount of input lag (the amount of time for your actions to be visible on screen).

In summary:
G-Sync has the least amount of input lag.
Fast Sync has some amount of input lag but has some noticeable micro-stutters that may be annoying.
V-Sync has the most amount input lag.
