Hi, I am new to this forum and after looking around for a place to request help on this issue it seems most recommend here. I am currently using an AOC G2460F and have been for the past month or so after receiving it from a friend who no longer needed it. The games I mostly play are Overwatch, CSGO and PUBG and although Overwatch runs fine the other two do not and haven't been ever since I got this monitor it seems. It simply feels as though i'm getting fps drops and frame stutters in these games (most noticable in PUBG). Originally I thought my CPU or GPU may be faulty but the in game steam overlay shows that I am constantly getting over 100fps in these games (240fps in CSGO). My specs should be more than enough to run any of these games with ease I would imagine (see specs below). However, yesterday I decided to try and run my PC with an HDMI connection instead of DisplayPort and all the games ran like butter. The only problem I noticed was horrible screen tearing with which I enabled V sync and this was no longer an issue. What could this problem be then? A faulty monitor? A faulty display port cable (unlikely i'm guessing). It may also be worth noting that the in game graphic settings do not make a difference with this and that another friend has literally an identicle setup to myself with the exception of playing on a TV instead of a monitor and his games run flawlessly.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
