Whenever I play games, I will tend to want to be in fullscreen mode. But when doing so, my monitors lose signal when the connection wires are completely in. I am also having to play on very low graphical settings when I know my graphics card can handle higher.

specs are
Graphics Card: PowerColor Red Dragon RX 550 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (AXRX-550-4GBD5-DH)
MotherBoard: MSI PRO H410I PRO WIFI LGA 1200 Intel H410 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB DDR4 3200
CPU: Intel Core I3-10100F

Monitor 1: Acer KG221Q
Monitor 2: Asus VH238
both resolutions are at 1920 x 1080
Asus is 60 Hz while Acer is 75 Hz
I cant run most games with that resolution and have to drop down to 720
and no, just in games.

I sincerely doubt it. 3 times worse than a 1060. You are lucky if you get 30 fps.

What is that RAM running at? Didn't Intel limit it to 2666 or 2933 Mhz on the lower non-K CPUs? And yeah, power can always be an issue.

Do you have access to another GPU for testing purposes? One you can swap with yours to isolate the issue?

I suspect your GPU is the problem.

Also, is your motherboard BIOS up to date? Same question for Windows and your major drivers (motherboard chipset, video, network).
