Sometimes when starting certain games, my pc will get really loud and my monitor will go black and say signal lost. I then have to fully shut off my pc in order for it to connect to my pc again. I’m guessing it’s a graphic card issue since it is an older pc but I’m also wondering if I should change my display to a 1080p display instead of a 1440p display.

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs. Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

include the age of the PSU and not just the make and model of the unit(or just it's wattage). If you're on Windows 10, check to see what version you're on at the time of writing.

I think the issue can and will be the PSU being unable to deliver the power necessary for your entire system. Can you state what games you've taxed the platform with without stating an etc.
