    Bought a 240hz monitor. Set it up , set refresh rate at 240hz. Was running a game forabout 15 minutes. Started smelling a burning it shut my computer down ( will not restart)
    Question: could this moniter have burnt my graphics card and/or motherboard up?

    I would give the power supply a sniff test. The graphics card was probably drawing more power than before due to higher operating frequencies. This could have overloaded a marginal power supply.
