Question Why do all my games lag on high resolution?

Hi there

PC specs firstly:
  • Dell i7 7700k 4.2ghz with 24bg RAM, Windows 10
  • Geforce GTX 1060 6g
  • Samsung 28" UHD LED monitor (for what it's worth)
I've had my PC for just over a year now. I bought it mainly to produce music but also to play games.
Any game I seem to play, regardless of how new it is, has a painful amount of lag when on higher resolutions.
Reducing graphics in general (vsync, antialiasing, frametare etc.) have little effect on performance, however, lowering resolution do abysmal quality does the trick.
PC is in immaculate condition with the help of System Optimizer, Bitdefender virus control, malware detection software, fairly empty hard drives, etc etc.

I'm starting to think that maybe after all my PC just isn't fit to run half decent games.
Either that or my monitor has something to do with it.
ANY HELP or input would be hugely appreciated.
Cheers

Your GPU isn't powerful enough for UHD or 4k resolution. If you want to play games at 4k you will need a higher end graphics card. I recommend a 1070 through a 1080ti or a 2080 for 4k gaming.

So it's just my graphics card then? How come any resolution above say 1920x1080 creates performance issues? Certainly it can handle that!
@COLGeek - is there a way I can attach a screenshot of my temp data?
