Back in February, I purchased an MSI RX 580. Right from the get-go, when just browsing the web or using a resource light application, my monitor would be begin to flicker before finally turning to a colored static. The weird thing is, I had 0 issues playing games such as Resident Evil 2 Remake or Valkyria Chronicles 4. But I DO have issues playing games like Enter the Gungeon or A Hat In Time. I did RMA the card and received a ( I think ) refurbished card. Same issue.
Usually what happens is the monitor will flicker once. Then a couple more times. Then a long flicker before finally going to the colored static. Turning the monitor off and on immediately resolves the issue for a little bit. I have also experienced a flickering where the screen appears smaller and near the top left of the screen but that does not always result in the colored static.
I was able to play a hat in time for a while this morning. The screen went to colored static twice but power cycling the monitor fixed the issue for probably 40 minutes or me each time.
I am using a DVI cable. I think I tried an HDMI cable at one point but I will try that again.
RAM:2x4GB Vengence DDR3 1600MHz
MoBo: MSI Z77A-G45
PSU: LSP-750 Watt
Monitor : ASUS PA248
I think my MoBo and CPU may just be too old to really be compatible ( even though pc part picker said it should be compatible ). I'll probably end up upgrading those in the coming months.
