Rx 5500 Xt OC cant figure out a crashing issue


I'm very new to PCs, however I feel like I've learned alot very quickly due to all the issues I've had.

Right now I'm having what seems to be a display error that's causing my whole system to crash whenever I try playing a game.

I'll be playing, then screen goes black and usually there's a buzzing noise in my headset, then VGA error light on the MB turns on.

I usually have to hard shutdown the pc at this point, but sometimes it'll reboot itself. One time it automatically switched to CSM from UEFI and said that VGA wasn't compatible.  The AMD software's stress test doesn't seem to crash it though.

I've tried different drivers with ddu so nothing mixed, reinstalling chipset drivers, unplugging everything and plugging it back it, reseating GPU, reseating RAM, I've gotten a new CPU, motherboard and PSU.  Still has the same issue.  Here are all of my specs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
