Hello i got a 3440x1440 75hz monitor from a friend who didn't use it but I'm using it now i can use it fine on 3440x1440 but i only get to 50hz even though the monitor native speed is 75hz and i cant find a way to change it i have installed the drivers for it I'm using the correct HDMI port that supports the 75 hz input. i installed the newest drivers on it too for the gpu

Ram corsair vengeance 32gb 3200mhz

I have been doing a little reading for you..
Apparently you will need to use Display port or DVI to get to 75hz..
There are a few posts around the net with people having problems with HDMI and the R9 280x..
Providing your monitor has DP, I personally would use that..
Found out that the R9 280X is a rebranded HD7970 GPU card.
I looked at several websites for the specs on the R9 280X but it doesn't mention the HDMI version or Max resolutions except MSI R9 280x mentions that its GPU card uses HDMI version 1.4a which is probably the same for all R9 280X GPU cards.
So your GPU card probably has HDMI 1.4 version output which according to this tech site: https://kb.plugable.com/docking-stations-and-video/385318-does-the-hdmi-1-4-port-support-4k-resoluti...

No. The port complies with HDMI 1.4, and as such 3840x2160 (4K is only achievable at 30Hz. 2560x1440 and all lower resolutions will display at 60Hz.
Which probably indicates why you are getting only 50Hz on your monitor.
As @vialli100 mentioned to get higher Hz at your Resolution you will need to use the DP and possibly the DVI-D ports to get 75Hz at your Monitor's Resolution.
NOTE: You can google HD 7970 Specs to see what outputs version it has and what maximum Resolution it outputs.
Did a different cable work?
Either the video card does not pull 75 Hz at 4k, or the cable you have is not the version you need. If a friend gave the monitor along with the cable, then the video card itself does not pull such a monitor frequency in 4k.
Yes, I just entered the HDMI characteristics in the search and a picture search, there was this one among the pictures, and the site on which it was no longer exists and most sites do not exist, with a similar table, so only the table remains (
No problem I just found the website where it shows that same chart: https://www.the-home-cinema-guide.com/hdmi-cable-connector-explained.html
Here is more information about the maximum resolutions for HDMI 1.4b: https://hdmi.org/spec/hdmi1_4b
