Difference between 100hz and 144hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Has anyone went from a 100hz monitor to a 144hz monitor before?  I'm currently on a 75hz monitor and looking to upgrade.  Is the difference worth the price?

 

EDIT: The monitors I'm looking at are ultra wide monitors and the difference between 100hz and 144hz is about $100-$200 dollars

"Worth" is subjective.

You also didn't even say what the price difference was.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

The jump from 60 to 100 is probably the biggest. After that it becomes less noticeable not that it isn't. I have a 240hz with gsync and so I have played at a variety of refreshrates. Even 100 to 144 is noticeable but again 60 to 100 is much more noticeable. At 100hz it makes gaming very smooth so most are content with that. After 100 it's less about smoothness and more about what you can see.

That is totally fair.  I updated the original post but the cost difference between 100hz or higher is anywhere from $100-$300 dollars.

Could you elaborate more about that "what you can see" part?

When you are moving around really fast i tend to see things or frames that I wouldn't have at a slower refresh rate. Normally this is split second things in overwatch for me. It's important in competitive gaming but not as important in casual.
