Sims 2 Pink/Purple Flashing. How can I fix this?

I just got a completely new computer after my last one went kapoot. I've installed the Sims 2 and I get this pink/purple flashing 30 minutes - 1 hour into gameplay (however the quickest being 15 minutes) this flashing will appear in neighborhood view and in lot view. Sometimes the application terminates. I know this is a common problem, but I have never personally experienced it in all of my 10+ years of simming. How can I fix this?

I have Sims 2 RPC, with the 4GB patch applied and around 10 GB of Custom Content. The issue appears even without any custom content or very few. I never had this issue on my old computer so I'm at a loss. Anyways, I'd appreciate any help. Attached is my config file.

Computer Specs if needed:
Windows 10 Pro
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 @ 3.6 GHz
RAM: Team T-Force Delta RGB 16GB @3200MHz CL16 DDR4
GPU: GeForce RTX 3060 Gaming OC 8GB

Any help would be appreciated.

Your gpu isn't listed in the videocards.sgr. Add it manually or use GRM and it will add it for you. But only use the dedicated amount of memory that your GPU has, not what GRM suggests.
