Crashes/Black screens/Freezes in games can still hear sound

Hello, around 7-8 days I decided it was long due to change and upgrade my laptop to a gaming desktop and I decided to go with the AMD CPU/GPU platforms.

The problem(s) that I am facing is that my new gaming PC is only good for watching TV shows/browsing the internet since it crashes/freezes when I try to play any kind of game (at the moment The Witcher 3 and Dragon Age Inquisition)

My new PC consists of:

Motherboard - ASUS TUF B450-PLUS GAMING

CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 3600

GPU - Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT NITRO+

RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 Dual Channel

PSU - Corsair RM750 2019 750W

Monitor (if it helps) - DELL Gaming S2719DGF 1440p 144hz

Windows 10 PRO

GPU driver Adrenalin 2020 Edition 19.12.3 Optional (so the latest one available)
To be honest I hope all I need to do is just related to the driver since all of the OCCT tests that I have done have resulted in 0 crashes/errors (tested the CPU, GPU, VRAM and PSU in it).

Edit 1: forgot to mention the weird black/green screen flickers in the Discord app (only place where it happens so I'm going to assume it has something to do with the app).
