you will start to notice lag and blur of 60/60 as soon as you start playing on 144hz a little more.
If you didn't get a g-sync/freesync display I'd run 144hz with v-sync off but cap my fps with rtss or the like. I feel a lot of hitching going on when fps jumps a lot and your monitor doesn't set the refresh accordingly. it's pretty annoying. it's much better when fps is more steady.
v-sync with half refresh rate (120hz/60fps) is even more laggy to me than 60/60

Hmm. This is a lot to think about. I mean, I worry that if my system isn't powerful to play my favorite games at 144 FPS but is just fine at 60, then I'm probably not going to be very happy huh? Or will that be taken care of if I get a G-Sync monitor?

Vsync will synchronize the new frame with the refresh timing of the monitor at the frequency you set it. If it can't reach that mark you will still experience some tearing although less than when the frame rate is above the monitors refresh rate. If sync is your first priority I would suggest a g-sync panel as you own a gtx 780. They are quite expensive. There are no differences when running at vsync 60fps on a 60hz or 144hz monitor. In either case you are experiencing it at 60fps which brings a whole lot of other disadvantages compared to 144fps which I won't get into.

If you choose to uncap the frame rate with a 144hz monitor you will be able not only to feel (it can be felt on 60hz monitor) the difference but also see it. As you go go for higher frame rates and higher refresh rate monitors tearing will become less and less noticeable.

Haha, sorry for the non-user name post, I was gonna assume 1080 as I looked at your current spec monitor but wanted to make sure. If you're not playing the latest taxing games the 780 should still be able to push good frame rates at 1080p with some candy in a good amount of games. As a few others have suggested a G-sync monitor would be nice if you can go a little more money, but the 144hz monitors I have played on are nicer than my 60 hz 1080p monitor, in overall system use and gaming.

I would go G-sync as the others are saying, here are a few for 1080p:

If I chose the Acer Predator XB241H, then would I have any regrets? Would I be happier with any other monitors that fall within absolute maximum budget of $400 shipped?

 

If so, then the only question I'd have is if the panel itself is the "matte" type because that's an absolute requirement for me. I can't have any distracting reflections.

 

 

Edit: Wow, GTRtank. You made a post recommending the XB241H while I was writing this one. What an interesting coincidence.

 

Are AOC's monitors really worthy of recommending? I haven't heard of them until yesterday.

I don't like that G-Sync costs $100+ extra and it locks you to NV which GPU prices will get even more ridiculous than they are now. I would get a 144Hz FreeSync monitor and get an AMD card (which I did)

with g-sync you'll run 60hz too if you get 60fps, but without the lag.
IMO g-sync is a better investment in a gaming rig overall. you are able to push as many (or as few) frames as your gpu can without tearing,stutter or any lag.

lol another one who thinks freesync is free
did you remember to check the sig rig ? you would get a freesync monitor for a nvidia card, that's brilliant advice. keep up the good work.

Oh and if we're going to start talking monitor recommendations, I can't have anything bigger than a 24" due to where I need to put it.

 

It also can't have the high-gloss reflective type of panel. It must be the "matte" type.

well there's a sweet new 25" 1440p 144hz dell monitor with g-sync, although IDK whether it launched already.
although for GTX 780 1080p is probably the preferred resolution.
