System Hang When Game Is Launched

First specs
AMD Ryzen 5800X3D Processor with Thermalright Peerless Assassin 120 SE
32GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 Ram at 3200MHZ Dual Channeled
MERC Speedster 6900XT
1 TB Sea Gate HDD

(x2 )1TB WD Blue SN550 NVMe Internal SSD - Gen3 x4 PCIe 8Gb/s, M.2 2280
Asus TUF X570 Pro with WIFI
My issue, When playing any game, I end up having what seems like a system hang on programs, or even my web browser when trying to multitask.
IE: Playing Hunt Showdown , I alt tab to 2nd monitor to check out a youtube video while waiting for match to load, my browser doesn't even pop up for about 20 seconds, then once it does when trying to search it looks like i am having Net issues but it's just not loading anything for about another 30 seconds to a minute. Once I close the game all proggies work fine and normal again.
Things I have done to try to help situation :
1- Driver are all updated along with chipsets and bios
2- I have checked the power usage and the card hits about 250watts on load and never above 55 degrees since I have undervolted the cpu and gpu
3- I have done a temp file cleaner, along with your basic mait for windows 11
4- I have tried turning off one monitor and still have the same issue
5- I have used DDU to wipe and installed drivers again
6- I have checked Task Manager during these times with the system hang(once it finally loaded) and nothing is over 50% usage.
7- Asking the amd community which is what I am doing now. 
Does anyone have any thoughts or possible ideas? None of these issues happened before my upgrade from a 2070 super to the 6900xt. 
Reset Windows 11, reinstalled my games, and no issues. So there must have been something going on in the background without me knowing.

Have you considered updating your bios? Bios updates improve alt-tab functionality in some cases.


Bios is updated already.


what drive is the game installed on?

Is the firmware on  your SSD's all  up to date?

6900xt requires more power and generates more heat then a 2070 .. I'd recommend a beefier power supply .. 1kw 80+ gold or better rated

Games are installed on an M.2. Firmware is all updated. Going by the power supply calculator and using the adrenaline software along with HWinfo it shows I have used about 575 watts total so i still have just under 225 watts left. My power supply is gold rated. You think it's really the power supply at this point? I used this.
