IPS VS 144Hz? For Guild Wars 2

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Soon I buy a new pc (although I'm waiting for the new GTX series) and when I started to search for a monitor, I was almost killing my self - "TN, IPS, 144, 120, 60, 100, HZ, PLS, LCD, LED, MS..." etc.
Anyway, my main problem is to choose the right monitor for an online game called Guild Wars 2(and a little but of FPS and NFS).

I was told LG has the best monitors to offer:
http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-25UM56-P-ultrawide-led-monitor IPS 60Hz
or
http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-24GM77-B-gaming-monitor TN 144Hz


Thanks for the help

Depends on how competitive you are. I really want a 144hz so that the movements are really smooth, but the older I get the more I want things to look nice over reacting fast. I also realize that you I would need really power PC to keep up with the faster refresh rates.

Well, about power I'm planning on GTX 1080 or w/e its name is.

Any more comments?

You can get the best of both worlds.

Acer XB271HU is IPS, 144hz, gsync 1440p. Overclocks out of the box to 165hz. I just got mine yesterday. Very minimal backlight bleed.

To break it down fast and easy Hz on a monitor is how many FPS it can show.
TN and IPS are the panel type and there are good and bad things about both TN and IPS.

TN is faster and cheaper but also has much worse colors and viewing angles.
IPS as already said has much better colors and viewing angles but is a bit slower and costs more.

IPS is considered by most to be much better as the colors on TN are really not all that good.
So unless you dont have a lot of money stay away from TN panel monitors.

More then 60 Hz is easier to do on a TN panel monitor.
But as said before it also looks worse and there are some IPS monitors with more then 60 Hz.

If you can spend money on a good IPS panel monitor with 120/144/165 Hz you should do that.
But you have not said anything about how much you can or want to spend?

I recommend against paying extra for 144hz for this particular game, it is nice when it works, but there are so manu scenes where you drop to 30-60 because of the single core CPU bottlenecks. Something to watch out for in many MMOs.

For Guild Wars 2, I can't justify spending extra for 144Hz if that's all you plan to play, there's just too many occasions where fps was below 60 due to horrible optimizations. In fact pretty much every MMO that I have tried out suffered from crappy optimization making 144Hz useless, with the only exception being Final Fantasy 14 where I could still pull off 80+ fps even in heavily populated areas.
