Question Intermittent VGA Light (and now DRAM today)

Hello everyone! I built my first a month ago and have been really enjoying it. However, every once in a while I'll boot the PC up and will get the VGA error light to come on. I tried re-seating my GPU but to no avail. It works perfectly fine when it's on, no affect on performance, so I've just ignored it. However, I just had the DRAM light come on during boot and was left with a black screen, so I held the power button and turned it back on, and it's working fine. Should I be worried? I turn off my computer every night and then back on in the morning because I've read it's no longer an issue for new computers, but at this point I think I'm going to stop doing that. Thanks in advance!

Also here are my specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
G.Skill Trident Neo RGB DDR4 3600 Mhz CL16
ASUS TUF X570 Plus (WiFi)
Seasonic Prime Titanium 850W
NZXT X73 AiO
