Question Acer XF250Q flickers when I start certain games, fixed when I either unplug and plug my GPU back in or turn the monitor off and on again.

Anyone know what might be causing this? When I start games such as Path of Exile, Rainbow Six Siege or Titanfall 2, the monitor flickers and show the "DP in" message, like when you plug the monitor in. If I disconnect and reconnect the displayport cable, it works just fine and for the next few hours I can close and restart the games with no flickering occurring. If I wait for a while, like wait until the monitor sleeps and then turn it on and try again, the issue occurs again. Same type of fix happens when I turn the monitor on and off again.

My Specs:
Ryzen 9 3900x
ASUS ROG Strix 2080ti
Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite motherboard
32gb of 3200mhz RAM
Monitor in question: Acer XF25-Q
Secondary monitor: Acer K242HL
I run 2 1tb ssds
RM 750x power supply

The games work fine after I restart the monitor and I can onpen and close the games that cause the issue over and over with no problems. I also didn't have this problem in the first 2 months I used the monitor. Any ideas?
