I got a new monitor and PC recently(monitor in November PC in December), and I originally had the monitor hooked up to my PC with HDMI, but I realized the monitor I had was capable of 165hz and wanted to try that out(I believe on HDMI I was running either 120 or 144hz I don't remember); So, I bought a display port cable since trying to get 165hz over HDMI doesn't really work. I believe I got the computer to do 165hz with the display port cable, but recently my monitor has been saying it was out of range. So, I went into Nvidia Control Panel to try bringing the refresh rate down to see if it was causing the issue, and it doesn't even show 120hz as an option much less 165.(Max is 100, unless I go back to HDMI then its 120 again.)

Thanks for any help at all!

Oh, and the out of range does not happen on my second monitor if that helps.
