I just finished building this PC last week, and everything seemed to work. But yesterday I tried playing games (halo), and the monitor just turned off on me. I turned it back on and continued playing for about 30 seconds before the monitor turned off again. I repeated this process like 10 times.
Then today when i booted up my computer, the monitor stayed black and the keyboard/mouse did not connect. Any thoughts?

I have tried a different monitor and cables.

right after i hit send on that last message, my screen went black for 5 seconds then came back. This is different than what it has been doing, but I suspect the problems are related?

Edit: When this happened I noticed "focus assist" was flashing? not sure what that even is, but I disabled it and was actually able to complete a mission without any issues. This may have been my issue all along, i will have to test it more later.
