    If my GPU can't get 144 fps is it still worth it?

      GamingScan  4 months ago +1

      Yeah for the future, you probably get over 60FPS right now. Monitors often don't get replaced like PC parts.

    TN panel better than ips for gaming due to lower imput lag

    Well, not for me. Skyrim's already questionable physics break completely when the FPS go above 60.
    60FPS are also smooth enough for me. I'd rather play 4K@60FPS than 2K@144FPS or even 1080P@144FPS.

    If its support freesync and LFC , then its worth it because virtually it support freesync range from 0 fps to 144 fps. And Nvidia also support freesync including LFC nowadays, so there is no doubt about value of freesync monitor 144Hz with LFC no matter what your GPU is, even if you only had the midrange one

    Does 60fps feels the same on 60hz monitor as 60 fps on 144hz?

  • entry

    Why of all the number why 144hz?? 30 60 120 why 144?

    • Patrick D.
      Patrick D. 8 months ago

      because the additional 24 frames represent 20% of 120Hz (basically 120 x 1.2). So somebody thought adding 20% more frames to 120Hz would be a great idea. 180Hz monitors are 60Hz x3 and 240Hz monitors are 120Hz x 2 or 60Hz x4.

    I game on a 4k 60 Hz monitor I just prefer the better clarity and detail and just don't really see that big of a difference between 60 and 144 I do play multiplayer and single player games but I don't take multiplayer very competitively

    Yes they are worth it! Once you go from 60hz to 144hz, there is no going back! And i only spent 140 bucks on my 144hz monitor. The color isnt as great as Ips monitor, but it does the job well enough for me!

    I've got a 144hz va monitor and I don't get ghosting or motion blur. Not that I've noticed at any rate. But a guy who reviewed it said it was pretty good for a va panel.
    It has 1ms response time and low input lag.
    Colours are fantastic.
    I noticed how smooth games were straight away.
    But going back to 60hz is when you really notice the difference.
    It's like 144 is how it should be and 60 feels like my pc is broken.
    I can get used to 60 again after a while in some games but in FIFA it seems terrible.

      Im getting over 500 in csgo eith my 1070ti and i7 8700 and i barely find any difference its there but not really worth it i would have bought a 1080ti and a 144hz monitor if i can go to the past again

    • Veqtrah
      Veqtrah 8 months ago

      @Dogs and Gooses forever well you probably aren't getting 240 fps to notice

    • Dogs and Gooses forever
      Dogs and Gooses forever 9 months ago

      Well 30 to 60 is huge
      60 to 144 is huge too
      244 to 240 isn't really huge
      I honestly barely find a difference between 144 and 240

    Lol ;p Battlefield 2 ? Its Bad Company 2 :D Anyways, great video. I do game on 144 hz myself and its sweet. 60 hz is not too bad either, if you always hit the 60 fps and the monitor is low ms. It can feel pretty quick too. I'm still waiting for the day when IPS and G sync monitors become cheaper, so i can buy an extra 2.

  • BillnWa
    BillnWa Year ago

    Thanks for the summary. Makes sense. I mostly play single player games and I have a good IPS 60 Hz monitor with very low lag (Dell U2715h). I've been looking at Gsync monitors for awhile now. However, I've never noticed any of the issues people talk about when they talk about 60Hz monitors. You summed it up well, and your thoughts are close to what I was thinking, that these high refresh rate monitors are mostly for multiplayer gamers. I think the computer/gaming industry is always coming out with something new, which means we have to upgrade our computers and monitors to get the latest and greatest tech, which keeps them in the money. I think I'll stick with my 60hz monitor for now and next time I'm due for a GPU upgrade, maybe then upgrade my monitor at the same time.

    Going from 60hz to 165hz g-sync I can personally say it is a world of difference if you are wanting to play online shooters. For most action games or single player I still use my 60hz tv for better picture quality. I can tell a big difference when i cap my shooters to 60fps now. If you are worried about price, there are several cheap 144hz on amazon ~$200. Also screen tear would be a LOT less noticeable even without any kind of sync since it will last 144th of a second

  • MadTitan

    I get 150fps in csgo and i am struggling with screen tearing so it might be a good option to buy a 144hz moniter

    • Metal Videos
      Metal Videos 9 months ago

      @GamingScan not true. 144hz and up doesnt have screan tearing. the monitor is too fast for that. everything under 144hz do need some kind of help. wether its freesync gsync or Vsync.

    • MadTitan

      To get rid of screen tearing, make sure that your 144Hz monitor supports FreeSync (AMD GPU) or G-Sync (NVIDIA GPU) :-)
