Had input lag for months, put down 2000 dollars for a new pc and I am getting the same input lag back. It is the most noticable in CS and is very inconsistent. It will be completely gone, or impossible to play on. I have an i7 9700k and RTX 2070 with 800w of power and 16gb of ram. Could it be my monitor? I'm completely loss, and my performance on both PC's seemed to be sub par in games.

Could it be a power outlet problem? Not supplying sufficient power to the pc?

Yes it could be the monitor. For minimal input lag i would recommend a monitor with 144hz or more. What's your current monitor?

Current monitor is BenQ XL2411P. I contacted them for a replacement because it is in warranty.
Since you already have a 144hz monitor did you actually activate 144hz in windows and in the nvidia control panel? Running it in 60 hz might cause input lag.

The problem has to be related to the peripherals.

What kind of mouse and keyboard are you using? Are they wired or wireless, and have you tried disabling settings like mouse smoothing?
I have a logitech G Pro and Zowie EC1B Divina. I used them at lan and didn't notice any problems so I doubt it's the peripherals.

Yeah it's definitely 144hz. I bought a whole new monitor and it doesn't have as much if any input lag in it but I continue to get the same lag when trying to shoot people for fight them, makes it impossible to aim.

Bump. Feeling is inconsistent and can feel better/worse. Also, in CS if I use a third party program to play like ESEA, it can feel worse than usual. Slight input is back with the stuttering.
