Hello, this issue of mine started suddenly. One day was everything ok, another day big issues. Picture started to be messy, wierd symbols, colors etc. I got another graphic card and picture is ok, but i cant setup proper resolution and frequency.

I have dual monitor setup with extended desktop, one is some iiyama with native resolution 1920x1080@60Hz connected via HDMI, second one and my primary monitor is BenQ XL2720 1920x1080@144Hz connected via DP (1.3/1.4 cable, new, just bought it today).

When i have bot monitors connected, i cant set the BenQ to 1080p resolution with 144Hz, each reboot changes the option i got, one time its just some 1280x720 and 60Hz, another reboot and i can choose 1080 but only 100Hz and color output can be only YCbCr422 and limited dynamic range.

If i disconnect the second HDMI monitor, i can select full hd and 144Hz.

My gues is that my motherboard could be dying (if not whole card, PCIe slot at least) but i dont how to test it.
Another gues could be power supply.

Any gueses?

EDIT:
My spec:
CPU intel i5-8400
16G DDR4 RAM
M.2 SSD + HDD
Win 10 Pro
MB ASRock Z370M Pro4
PowerSuply 900W

ok, I'm confused. What was your old GPU, and what is your new GPU? Are they exactly the same?

You should also list more info about your computer, such as: the operating system, CPU, motherboard, power supply, etc..

The more details you provide, the better people will be able to suggest possible solutions.

I edited the main post with my spec, thx for pointing it out ;)

As to your question: i had Gigabyte RTX 2070 WINDFORCE 8G card and when the "space invaders" appeared i took it back to seller and got new one, MSI RTX 2070 ARMOR 8G OC.
So far (second day playing) no space invaders but the issue with resolution and frequency.

UPDATE: yesterday after whole day when i was about to turn my pc off i checked the nvidia control panel resolution setting and found out that the full HD@144Hz option is avaliable, so i selected it and it all worked. Today i turn on PC and main display was in 720p resolution and only way how i can make dual full hd resolutions is if both displays r at 60Hz.
Im wondering if after another few hours the full hd@144Hz option will show up again ...
