You can get up to 1080p 120 Hz though an HDMI to DisplayPort converter, which is about $30.

 

If you just bought the monitor I would recommend returning it and getting one that supports 144 Hz over HDMI though.

Hello i recently bought myself a new gaming computer PH315-51-78NP and 144hz monitor later on VG248QE and i read that the monitor only had  a hdmi 1.4 so i was ok with 120hz but when i plugged them in  and updated my drivers for my gpu and monitor i could only get 60hz will it hurt the monitor if i use a custom res to force the 120hz or is there something im doing wrong

VG248QE is limited to 60 Hz over HDMI. You must use DisplayPort or Dual-Link DVI.

You should buy a DisplayPort cable.  They're a few bucks on Amazon, no biggie.
