Question MacBook Pro cable for 1440p and 144hz

Hi,

I have recently bought a new monitor at 1440p and 144hz. I am currently using a HDMI to usb-c cable to connect to my MacBook Pro 2019 and have the refresh rate set to 144hz but it doesn't seem to be running very smooth... there seems to be a little bit of screen lag going on, definitely noticeable.

What is the best cable to be using for this? Should I use display port to usb-c? should that improve it?

this is the current cable that I am using - https://www.amazon.co.uk/uni-Type-C-Compatible-MacBook-Surface/dp/B075V5JK36/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia-wc-p13n1_0?cv_ct_cx=usb-c+to+hdmi&dchild=1&keywords=usb-c+to+hdmi&pd_rd_i=B075V5JK36&pd_rd_r=e50c1552-961b-4a4f-829f-a28d79d24e06&pd_rd_w=pMkP1&pd_rd_wg=0mqpX&pf_rd_p=e3a968a9-db34-4cb6-962f-ddcde7323cf7&pf_rd_r=TXJWB7NA6KY3Y4VGRZ2S&psc=1&qid=1593443945&sr=1-1-91e9aa57-911e-4628-99b3-09163b7d9294
