Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi i don’t know much about PC’s I’m looking on buying a gaming pc running a RTX 2080 ti.....il be playing newly released games which are more demanding I’m a sucker for graphics so I will be running everything on max so I’d imagine I’d have around a 60-100fps on average ...I set everything on max settings as I always do lol but I want a gaming monitor that will run super smooth and look amazing but I’m not sure if a 144hz monitor will cause any screen tearing or lagging  if I’m not reaching no we’re near 144hz or 144fps if that’s what it requires??.. so my question is what pc monitor would be best my budget is £1000 on a gaming monitor  thanks

If you are getting a 2080 ti, more likely than not you won't have any issues with your fps not reaching 144hz so long as you are using a cable that supports that hz and you stick to around 1080p/1440p. I mean I have a 1060 3GB and I can still play most games on high settings and still get around 60fps at least.

 

Finding a monitor that also supports g-sync would also help with any potential screen tearing issues.

Ok that’s cool thanks for the reply what sort of cable would I need to support the 144hz monitor so do you need to have a 144fps to run 144hz then?

For a RTX 2080 ti the choices are these or less.

 

1440 16:9 144hz = Hard to do. In tests I could only average 120fps without giving up quality.

1440 21:9 144hz = Harder to do. In tests I could only average 100fps without giving up quality.

4k 16:9 60hz = Doable

4k 16:9 144hz = Imposible to do. In tests I could only average 75fps without giving up quality.

1600 21:9 75hz= Doable

 

This is testing with hard to play games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Metro Exodus.

On older and less demanding games these monitors are all doable with the exception of 4k 144hz.

 

I use a 32" 4k 60 hz and a 38" 1600 21:9 75hz because I prefer resolution over refresh rate. When monitors that are the same size come out with higher refresh rates I will replace them.  

 

For 144hz plus monitors I would only buy one with Nvidia G-sync. I have tested Freesync with RTX and I don't use it. 

The 1440p 144hz monitor I bought was LG 32GK850G. I consider it to be a bit too big for 1440p but in the middle of a 3 monitor setup it is perfect.
