Question Is my dual monitor set up causing my pc to crash?

While I am playing and watching something my pc will freeze but audio will continue until the game crashes. It has even blue screened which has never happened up until i got the second monitor.

Is it possible my 2060 cannot handle two monitors?

It is possible but the problem is more likely power (PSU) related.

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

Include the PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition? Is there a history of heavy gaming use?

GPU - ZOTAC GTX 2060
CPU - Ryzen 5 2600x
PSU - Coolermaster 500 watts ( 2 years old max, should be in good condition and no overclocking has be done on this unit)
16 gigs of ram at 3200mhz (patriot)

since making this post I have reformatted my pc and played about an hour of hitman2 without crashes
issue may potentially have been a bad windows update or driver issue
