1920x1080 144hz or 1920x1200 60hz?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to replace the monitor I have because I just got a new GPU and thought it was time to upgrade the monitor as well. I am planning on going to a dual monitor set up in the future but I just wanted to get a new monitor to compliment the new card for right now.

I don't know what to get though: I currently have a 1920x1200 24" display and wanted to keep that resolution but I saw a monitor that I am interested in getting.

A monitor that really caught my eye is an ASUS monitor with a 144hz refresh rate, but the resolution is 1920x1080. I'm going to stay with the 24" size because the current desk I have would not fit two monitors any bigger than that when I do decide to upgrade. I'm pretty sure that the card I am getting will play most (if not all) of the games that I currently play at a frame rate well above 60 fps so I will definitely see a smoother picture, but I was wondering if it would be worth it to sacrifice the faster refresh rate for a monitor with a lower resolution.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I just ordered that same monitor, the Asus VG248QE. I should have it here in a couple days. I've seen it in person. And the higher refresh rate makes all the difference in the world, especially if you play online shooters. You won't be disappointed with this monitor.

Concerning the lower resolution, you shouldnt notice a big difference when switching from a 16:10 monitor to a 16:9. I myself am going from a 16:10 to a 16:9. I wanted to get a 16:9 because the field of view in FPS games is suppossed to be better. I will miss some of the height of the screen when playing strategy games like Rome 2, but I should be fine.

So true. But if you're sensitive to PWM flicker, then the BenQ XL2420TE is the only choice for 144 Hz gaming.
