RX 470 4gb upgraded monitor

Hello!      I reecently upgraded my old ACER 60hz 2ms monitor to a ASUS  MG248QR 144hz 1ms to future proof gaming.... But it seems that this may not have been a wise choice ?    

If i leave my PC on for an extended time without use  ( overnight usually )   I go to game a little and the screen is all funny looking, as far as shadows and edges on text and icons.  Now this has been going on for quite sometime, although it really wasnt that noticeable with a 60hz monitor and the gaming performance has been slightly reduced.  So im forced to reboot constantly after it sitting idle.    I built this PC with gaming in mind and thats the only thing i do with it except for surfing the internet and video watching.   

so here's my specs :

AMD FX-6300 @ 3.5ghz  with CM Hyper 212 Evo 

MSI 970 Pro Carbon motherboard 

MSI RX470 Gaming X 4gb 

16gb DDR3 1600 

Twin SSD's 240gb each ( Kingston) 

960gb WD Caviar Black ( mechanical) 

Logitech Peripherals   ( mouse, keyboard and Headset ) 

Crimson Relive 19.2.1 ( division 2 beta) 

And like i posted previously it doesnt matter what game i play or what activity my pc is doing.  This is the problem.   

Can anyone shed some light ?
