I have a samsung 27 inch curved monitor with a 72hz refresh rate. It runs some games flawlessly but other games are unplayable. Even something like minecraft. And i have an rtx 2070 an i5 9400f and 16gb ddr4 so i dont think it is my computer that is slowing me down. The rtx 2070 is an asus strix card and i have an x52 kraken 240mm aio for my i5 9400f so thermal throttling is a non issue, should i just get a new monitor?

i mostly have problems with all games. On rise of the tomb raider cpu temp stayed below 40 degrees and my gpu stayed under 55 degrees. The cpu usage was in the 50 to 60% and gpu was around 25%
