is it a big difference? I been playing at 60 fps because I been using my 4k TV. I was thinking of selling my PS4 Pro to help buy a monitor, But I'm not sure if it would be worth it.

im thinking about getting a 144 for my pc as well, i think you also need g sync or freesync if im getting those terms right depending on whether you have an nvidia or amd card?

Don't think you need it,But its nice to have. I'm just not sure if the jump from 60 to 144hz is worth it, wish there was a place I can see for my self lol also I mostly play with a controller not sure I will notice a difference.

I bought a Viewsonic XG2701 a couple months ago. Initially when I made the jump, the difference was noticeable. Games like Rainbow Six and GTA just looked so much cleaner and the motion was so perfect. Over time though I've just become used to it and the differences don't seem as significant anymore. I run a 3 monitor set up and have the 144hz Viewsonic next to my 60hz ASUS MX279 (Which has gorgeous colors by the way. Love this monitor) and I really don't notice it much anymore. Not to mention the Viewsonic is preeetty bulky. My roommate has a 144hz BenQ model that, honestly, I like a lot better than my Viewsonic. I paid I think $319 for my 144hz. If I could go back in time, I probably wouldn't have bought it

Absolutely. I have a Korean monitor OC'd to 110Hz. Played on a friend's 144Hz monitor, instantly thought of getting one. I like 1440p, though, and I'm not ready to spend $500 for a 1440p, 144Hz monitor.

I'm probably going to hold off on this. I forgot I would have to get rid of my TV or get a desk and chair.

Typically 60hz is enough for most games, however It does make gameplay smoother for games that support frame rate higher than 60 fps. Also if you care for 3d vision at all, you require at least 120hz monitor, games that support 3d vision looks absolutely gorgeous that will literally blow your mind and give you a headache in the process (maybe). Personally I think it's worth it for immersive games, like Tomb Raider or the Batman games, but for everything else it's a hit or miss.

Have you gamed on the 144 hz and then gamed on the 60 hz or are you just comparing basic things like desktop usage? I've heard from people who can maintain 144 and 120 fps on higher displays that going back to 60 was a bit of a challenge.

That is a fair point. I have my XBONE hooked up to my 60Hz which I guess is irrelevant, but no I haven't really gamed on the 60Hz since switching over.

But anyway, I'm currently using a 1440p 144hz monitor and I'm considering getting the 120hz Alienware ultrawide monitor. I've got a 1080 as a stopgap until the next cards come out. I imagine the difference between 120hz and 144hz isn't that big?

Trust me. Once you go 144hz you never go back.
