Hi I have the Gamer Master Desktop. When I'm playing games my display flickers and then freezes. Then I have to turn it off and turn it back on to start it up again. I put a video so ya'll can see what happens.This only happens when I'm playing games.

I'm thinking loose connection, overheating, or not enough ram?

Appreciate it on what someone else thought.

Please copy and paste your build sheet.  IF this was shipped to you, it is possible some components got knocked a little loose.  Open up the case, check the connections on everything that plugs in anywhere.  A slightly crooked ram stick or slightly crooked GPU is capable of causing all types of issues.  The main power bracket came loose in shipping for me many years ago, it had a good enough connection to work until the computer started gaming and would crash. Simply fixed the connection and never had a problem with it again.

MSI B450M BAZOOKA MOTHERBOARD
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz CPU
8GB DDR4 Memory
AMD Radeon RX 580 XTR 4GB GPU
240GB SSD + 2TB HARD DRIVE

I looked at the video below and after I did this the problem seemed to have stopped do you think this was the issue?
