Question Monitor is 240Hz, getting 100-144 FPS in games BUT it looks like it drops to 60 FPS even though it doesn't.

I've been playing games with around 100-144 FPS on a 240Hz monitor. I swear lately it's been a little janky, I always have the FPS counter on and it always says 100-144 FPS in games but when I'm playing it looks a little janky as if it's not 144 FPS? It only happens every so often. Could monitor drivers play a part in this? My specs:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
RAM: 16GB DDR4
GPU: GeForce RTX 3070

Have you tried reinstalling your GPU drivers with the latest version after you've removed the current drivers with DDU? Also, which version have you worked with thus far? There was an issue with the latest drivers from Nvidia though.

I've been playing games
Names of said games(without stating an etc in the sentence)?

How old is the PSU in your build? You're should've invested in a 650W reliably built PSU prior to dropping in an RTX3070 into your build, assuming you performed an upgrade on it. You also have BIOS updates pending on your build.

Not too sure :( I bought this PC from Scan last Christmas. Should I maybe upgrade to a 650W PSU? What is the best way to update your BIOS? I'm stupid
