Whenever I'm playing a game on high setting and my monitor will randomly turn off for a few seconds like 4-6 sec. then turn back on like nothing happens. This happens quite frequently. I just updated the drivers for the GPU.

My PC specs are

MOBO: ASUS TUF X570

GPU: Nvidia 2070 super ASUS dual evo

CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 3600 six-core processor

RAM:G.Skill Trident Z Neo
DDR4-3600MHz

PSU: Cooler Master MWE 650w 80+gold

SDD: WD Blue 250g

HDD: Seagate baracuda 2tb
