Set Your Refresh Rate in Windows

The most Important step to do is to change the refresh rate in your operating system, and we all know that gaming is only possible in windows OS. So, I will mention the steps below for different windows to change the refresh rate.

On Windows 10

Head to Settings > System > Display > Advanced Display Settings > Display Adapter Properties. Click the “Monitor” tab, choose your monitor’s advertised refresh rate from the “Screen Refresh Rate” list, and click “OK”.

On Windows 7 or 8

Right-click the desktop and select “Screen Resolution”. Select your monitor (if you have multiple monitors) and then click the “Advanced Settings” link. Click the “Monitor” tab and choose the refresh rate from the “Screen Refresh Rate” box.

If you don’t see your monitor’s advertised refresh rate in this list—or if you can’t seem to get your monitor to stay configured at the advertised refresh rate—there’s more you need to do.

Some tips to remember

Besides these all tips you have to select the right cable. Be sure that you have a DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 2.0 connection to take advantage of the full frame rate experience.
sometimes updating Nvidia can reset the monitor setting. so keep it in mind and double check it (if you do not want any trouble) before starting your game. And same as AMD.
Now all setup in complete and you can play your game with high frame rates
enjoy your game!
