So I just got back from basic training and my 144hz monitor looks grainy, its not super bad but noticeable. My brother said one day the monitor wasnt working then he unplugged it and plugged it back in and now its like this. I think the same thing had just happened to my second monitor. My graphics card is a rtx 2070 not sure if that could be the problem. Do I need to get a new graphics card?

Is the Refresh Rate listed as 144hz?
Is your RTX 2070 graphics card listed?
Is the name of your 144hz display listed?
Yes the Refresh rate is listed, the card is listed, but when I go to Device manager it shows the name of my other monitor but the one with the problem it reads Generic PnP Monitor and its an ASUS.
 
It Reads VG248 so I think so but like my display is brighter and everything is like grainy/fuzzy. You can just tell it should look clean and smootht.
Have you gone through the On-Screen Display menu of your Asus monitor, they may have changed? You have preset modes like Theatre, Standard, Scenery and Night View which can affect the way your display looks.
