Using 144hz PC to buy concert tickets

I have some concert tickets for a music group that I need to buy next week and I'm planning on going to a local internet cafe to try my luck using their PCs with 144hz. The tickets I'm planning on buying are in high demand and are likely to sell out within one minute, based off of prior concerts and their most recent sold out venue. However, I'm extremely unfamiliar with gaming monitors and whether or not if 144hz PCs will make any difference to my internet speed. My internet at home isn't the worst, but I'd like to maximize my chances of getting tickets as much as I can.

May I get a breakdown as to how fast a 144hz PC is and if it'll make a difference when used for browsing purposes instead of games? I'd really appreciate some clarification! Thank you in advance.

It will allow you to time travel in the past to the moment the tickets were printed.

The screen is refreshing faster, that's it.
If you were standing next to some one (using a 60hz panel) on the same network and you refreshed a page at the same time you would see the image roughly 9ms before they would which would make almost no difference at all. Still 9ms is something I suppose.



I'd follow this guide:

Thanks for the reply and for sending the link! The article was extremely helpful. May I ask if all the 144hz PCs in the internet has its own wired connection, would it lessen the potential lag that may happen?

There's no such thing as a 144hz PC, just the monitor runs at 144hz.
Yes a wired connection would likely be slightly better than wireless on the same network but wireless has come so far even that would be a very small difference. Your best bet is simply to have good internet and have as many people as possible all trying to get them, if you all end up with tickets to a sold out show you should be able to sell them...or you could be in communication the whole time so you don't buy more than you need.


You can pretty much take the 144hz monitor out of this equation entirely, it's not relevant.
