So I just built a new PC.
Ryzen 1600 Vega 56 video card Samsung 144hz freesync monitor 16gb ram 500gb ssd 650watt plat psu MSI x370 mobo
Anyways while hooked up to displayport i have a flickering horizontal line that is wavy. The whole line of pixels. When I play games overtime my screen will also become shadowed with purple or red. It just happens as I play and if I go in to settings and switch a setting say from freesync on to off it goes away but will come back again.
If I hook a hdmi cord I have no issues. I started with a RX 580 video card and new vega 56 didn't fix this. Ordered a new Displayport first and that did nothing.
Thought I would ask for help.

If the monitor works fine with the HDMI, and the issue only occurs with DP, then perhaps the monitor's DP port is damaged. Or damaged else where. Since this monitor is new, you should have it under warranty, right?

Just don't want to return my monitor, and order a new on and have the same issue. Then I have to go down the line in parts.

Would hdmi woking perfect cross out other parts that could of been the issue. Like psu, ram, mobo.

Try a Certified DP cable it might just be a crappy cable.

Those Samsung 144 hz monitors are known to have issues especially ones made in 2016.. request a 2017 version if you replace it
