I was in the same boat and was thinking about getting the Asus 24" 144hz monitor, and now am glad that I didn't. Not much of an upgrade going from older 1080p 60hz monitor to newer 1080p 144hz monitor IMO.
Really? I upgraded from a 1080p 60hz monitor to a 1080p 144hz monitor and i saw a HUGE difference in gameplay; as i felt more immersed in my games and i found that moving objects were a lot more clearer to see than on my 60hz screen; as well as being a helicopter gunner in zoom mode allowed me to see objects moving very quickly as sharp as they would if they were standing still, that in turn helped me spot and kill more people for a higher score. Maybe you didnt see the difference between 120hz and 60hz but that doesnt mean it applies to everyone. I saw a difference.

At a higher refresh rate; you'll be getting less tearing and rarely need Vsync; plus any more fps you get past 60 will be beneficial to you as your monitor "has a potential/or ability" to display
a higher refresh rate for the few times you will be spiking over 60fps. So you might not always be doing 120hz @ 120fps but you might be going over 60fps and getting the benefit from the few times it does go over...

I would go with a 3D monitor that has the strobing feature so that you can use 120hz lightboost (the 1440p chinese models that can overclock to 120hz will not have this strobing feature). Note that 120hz Lightboost has less motion blur than 120hz Non-Lightboost/Non-strobed. So your 1080p VG248HE with activated 120hz Lightboost will look clearer in terms of motion blur compared to a 1440p screen that has an overclocked refresh rate of 120hz (non lightboost) -- no strobe feature.

The strobed 120hz is a lot better than non strobed. I see a huge difference in FPS gaming. I feel more immersed in infantry games now as movement of plants look more natural and clearer; people running around looks more fluid, and planes and helicopters doing quick fly by's are as crystal clear as they would be if they werent moving.

-- This is coming from a 120hz Lightboost / VG278HE user.

Right Aesthethc,

Thats why I said, it depends. My friend who plays an FPS competitively, loves his lightboost BenQ. He likes my 1440p 120Hz too, but as far as gameplay he likes his better. Its just a better gaming monitor. If you're like me (and several others) and like the general purpose of your computer, with an added gaming feature, 1440p is nice. If you have alot of money, 1440p 120Hz is real nice.

I understand that it depends on what people like better; but the 120hz lightboost (strobed) actually has less motion blur than 120hz non strobed. That is a known fact. 1440p and 120hz is nice to have; but it just wont be as fluid as a monitor with the strobe feature for strobed 120hz.

Whether or not someone likes their 1440p OC'ed 120hz over their 1080p 120hz strobed is clearly subjective. But if we were to compare it hardware vs hardware; then the strobed monitor will have the least motion blur.

Though dont get me wrong; i would LOVE to have a 1440p monitor. And 1440p will just look way better than 1080p. The VG248HE though, will have LESS motion blur than a 1440p 120hz monitor just because of the fact that it has the strobing feature that the OC'able 1440p foreign models dont have. Hardware vs Hardware. Not based on who likes one "better" than the other....

In addition to that,
Overclocked 120Hz has more ghosting/motion blur than non-LightBoost 120Hz on ASUS/BENQ.

Many QNIX users run at only 96Hz, because 96Hz-vs-120Hz isn't as noticeable on QNIX, as non-strobed 100Hz-vs-120Hz on LightBoost monitors, because going above 96Hz on a QNIX just causes streaking (multiple refreshes blending into each other, like an old 33ms LCD from yesteryear).
I like QNIX for color and resolution, but let's not forget that even ignoring strobed -- 120Hz is clearer on ASUS/BENQ than 120hz on QNIX.

That's correct, but i don't care about those things. If it's really good (as good as promised bij NVidia) then I will pay extra for G-sync in my monitor. I think it's not the best thing that it is a proprietary feature but if AMD had inventend this I would switch back to them (before my 670 i had a 6950). I am not biased, I will choose for intel, AMD or Nvidia if they can give me products that match my likings/wishes at given times. If this becomes a new standard then other companies will pay Nvidia to get it or they will invent something likewise. So anyone with who isn't biased or a fanboy and looking for GPU upgrade in the near future can make this switch

But i'm still skeptic against it, I want to see some third party tests and user opinions of this technology to see if they really deliver what they promise. If they succeed, I will get it.
