looking for replies from someone who owns a 144hz, 165hz or 240hz gaming monitor
Questions:
  1. Have you tried several monitors with different hz? Is there a difference when playing Quake?
  2. When the fps are lower than the refresh rate, do you notice lag, or its still smooth?
  3. do you ever activate v-sync?


  4. i had other questions but (a) the login session expired and lost the text and (b) eventually reading this and this was enough
never argue with an idiot. they'll bring you back to their level and then beat you with experience.

Asus ROG SWIFT PG278QR is probably the screen you want, it's 27" 165hz . Don't forget to atleast have a 900-series card to drive it. 700-series (atleast Geforce TITAN can do 144hz - don't know about 780/780ti) works, but limited to 144hz, 600 series at 120hz

I went from a 144hz asus vg248qe ( 24” ) to an Alienware AW2518Hf 240hz monitor ( 25”)

Both monitors 1080p

At first I wasn’t sure if there was an improvement but there definitely is.

I still have my 144hz in work and I can notice the blur / ghosting on it compared to the new 240hz monitor. Only noticed this when upgrading

I play with 1155fps and v-sync off.
