WindowServer crashing when gaming or streaming

WindowServer crashing when gaming or streaming

Hardware, I can add anything else anyone requests.

CPU Intel Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake
GPU Gigabyte Radeon Rx Vega 56 Gaming (3 monitors all via display port)

So I am not sure if this is the thing crashing or if this is crashing because of something else, but it is the only info I can find. When playing a game (Planetary Annihilation | LoL) and/or streaming (YouTube | Discord) I get a really odd situation I cannot seem to find anywhere online or duplicate on demand (yet, I am trying). Essentially all video output freezes, except the cursor turns into the spinning beachball of death and can still move. I can still hear audio and if I am in discord I can still speak to people for a minute or two before the whole computer crashes and all video and audio stops working.

Any help at all or suggestions would be appreciated.

I have omitted the thread list but can upload it if someone wants, it is quite large.
