    So a few days ago I got my PC, after plugging everything in I realised my monitor uses a VGA cable which isn't supported by my graphics card,so I used a VGA to HDMI adapter and plugged it in. I realised my resolutions are messed up, it shows more resolutions than it should ex. 1440x900(native) but I can go all the way up to 1920x1080 which my monitor can't support, even though I'm on my native resolution, everything looks bad quality, it's especially visible in games, I literally have to turn anti aliasing to the max for it to look playable, but here is the worst part, I have performance issues, fps drops and overall bad performance for this gpu and cpu combo, looking at some benchmarks on YouTube I see a pretty big difference in performance. I don't know what to do and is it because of the monitor or am I just missing something?

    PC Specs:

    Ryzen 5 1400

    Msi GTX 1060 6GB OC

    16GB 2400MHz DDR4 in Dual-channel

    1TB HDD

    120GB SSD

    Windows 10 Pro
