144hz how many FPS is enough?

Odd question and I know it is subjective. But is there that much difference going from say 100fps to 144fps? Besides constantly looking at the overlay I can't seem to tell much difference.

But I also didn't have a problem with 60hz (until I went back from 144hz)

I know everyone wants to hit 144fps but is it as a big of a deal at these higher rates compared to trying to hit 60fps.?

Love my 144 hz monitor but the higher you go the less it helps.

I had a similar question a few years ago and the owner of UFO test give me a good explanation. Probably it can clarify something to you.

Well I notice a difference between 100 and 144fps even on 60Hz so... yes there is a difference. It's 10ms vs 7ms. On 144Hz it's probably less annoying difference but still noticeable anyway. If I can run 250fps instead of 150fps on 144Hz hell I will take it and I can see it. Sure the lag improvements are getting smaller as you go up, but the smoothness also improves.

Strobing is a whole different topic.

I kind of got lost in all that. I am not really arguing the merits of going 144hz, basically the question is how many FPS do you need for it to benefit. I guess the question is uber subjective.

It's not subjective, none of this is, you can do the math yourself. Don't need laboratory displays to verify either. Whether you are able to see these improvements is subjective though.
The higher FPS you can get the better, the higher Hz you can get the better, the shorter the strobing time you can get the better.

he's not asking what FPS/refresh rate is best.

I can tell the difference between 100 and 144 easily at the desktop/blur busters tests, but in most games I'd probably struggle unless I'm doing really fast unnatural camera movements to try and figure it out. About the only game where I could easily tell between something like 100 and 144 while playing normally is CS:GO.

Somebody gets me!!

Yeah I am playing BFV right now maxed out, getting around 90-105 and it looks great. Thinking about downgrading to a 1080 to pocket some cash hence the question. A little nervous about it though with the 1440p 144hz screen.

I can tell when frame rate deviates from 144 but only if it's locked at 144 and there is a dip...that's obvious.
IMO anything is better than 60fps though, there are games that I'd be fine running at 60 but any sort of FPS game makes me want 100fps minimums. A game would have to be absolutely beautiful for me to justify 60fps at 1440p, Deus Ex comes to mind.
The difference between 120fps and 144fps is quite small but it is there. IMO diminishing returns kicks in after 120 or so in most games.

I know that is not 100% related to your question but you can extrapolate some information from there. The guy say for reducing motion blur to a 50% you have to double the framerate or use strobing. So from 100 to 144 you are not missing much specially if your monitor have some type of adaptive sync. I agree with pook that some games are harder to notice a difference between for example 100 to 144hz. In Doom, CS:GO, Shadow Warrior 2 or any fast passed shooter I can notice that
