What refresh rates: flicker and no flicker?

My thought is that if you must wait 2 - 3 hours the problem may be heat related.

Takes time to cool down.

GPU and PSU are both suspect.

500 Watt PSU - correct?

Total up the system's wattage requirements and/or use some online calculators.

How close is the total system wattage to 500 watts?

i have a 60 herz monitor so i am just changing it to 50 and then back to 60. i also found out that just turning off and on the monitor stops the flickering.
i checked on sevral online calculators and the wattage is max 430
but for 2 of them i had to pick an 1660 ti because there was no 1660 super there

Try another display port or it can be the cable; Try a different DP cable.

One other thing you can try is doing a DDU. Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode and do a clean and restart then back up into normal mode install latest graphics drivers and let me know. ;)
haven't thought about that. i will try it in few minutes and let you know if it worked
