While playing games like Dead by Daylight and Phasmophobia, the controls stopped working and shortly after, the screen flickers and the screen becomes glitchy. This problem now occurs in one of these two scenarios:

- I can close the game with Task manager, but the screen creates small black and green pixels and after using a different tab, these pixels move to a different place of the screen

- I can't close the game with Task manager, because the screen becomes so glitchy that it's not possible to see anything. I can however still move my mouse and open things, but I can barely see them (see attachment) 

This problem has occurred for a while and I thought the problem was my splitted power cable, so I have used 2 seperate power cable for my GPU instead, but it didn't solve my problem and please don't answer the question with: "Return it" or "update your GPU driver with an external software" because I already tried it. Any other answer I really appreciate, cuz I'm out of ideas.
