Computer Black Screens and Freezes Up when playing Certain Games

Hi I can't figure out where to post this but recently my PC started black screening and when it does the fans ramp up and all LEDS on the mobo stay on and the computer freezes up so I am forced to hold down the power button to shutdown and boot up again. At first my friend suspected maybe the PSU was dying so we swapped it out and also just to be safe we swapped out the video card but the problem continued.  Next we thought the possibility was RAM or Processor so we swapped them out and the problem continued still. So we concluded the only remaining issue must be the mother board so we swapped that out with no change as the problem continued. We were completely lost so to be safe we did a fresh install of windows but yet the problem is still happening. We have tested all the temperatures and everything is running cool. We also checked and updated the bios for both motherboards. We are completely lost and are now coming here for help.

The original components were as follows.

Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
MOBO: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 32GB DDR4 3600
Video Card: Asus ROG Strix Geforce GTX 1080ti
PSU: EVGA 750b Supernova

The new components are as follows

Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X
MOBO: Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi)
RAM: G.Skill TridentZ RGB 32GB DDR4 3600
Video Card: MSI Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio
PSU: Corsair RMx Series RM850x 80 Plus Gold Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
