yah thats my fear paying extra $200-300 for 3" and to not run at full 144!

Then get something with Gsync, even if less than 144hz, you'll thank me later, just trust me lol

 

I've done a couple in-person tests at a friends place, a 120hz monitor with Gsync looks LEAGUES better than a 144hz monitor because the 120hz matches the framerate coming out of the GPU, great for AAA titles that won't go over 100fps, or even Vsync locked titles.

 

Non-gsync needs to skip/double frames to keep up/slow down to the GPU, which was perceived as stutter.

Because 144hz/fps was nearly impossible to reach without using minimum settings (was using 1080ti during testing), switching the display to half the refresh-rate and endabling vsync at 72hz ended up looking better than the 144hz mode. 

 

TL;DR 120hz Gsync > 144hz non gsync

Planning to get a new monitor this X-MAS or Boxing Day. If you have or know of a good monitor, recommend it!

So my debate is over (24" 144Hz 1080p) or (27" 144Hz 1440p). I am leaning towards the 24" due to them being much cheaper, but lowkey want a 27". But if I see a deal for the 27" ill get it. My question is for those who have (27" 144Hz 1440p) and have kinda the same specs as me. How is it? How are the frames, and are you able to run at 144Hz? Do you have any performance issues? 

Also I mostly play FPS, like Rainbow Six, or Battlefield at medium to high graphics.

My Specs: I7 8600k not O/C 
Gtx - 1080 EVGA SC
16GB 3200MHz RAM 


Thanks for all your help!

144fps is pretty hard to reach regardless of your hardware or what game you're running, unless you're playing CS;GO or Minecraft lol

 

That being said, whichever of these monitors support GSync will be the better monitor for your high refreshrate wants. You won't notice framerates below 144hz unless you're hemorrhaging under the minimum sync rate of the display, usually 60-75hz (60-75fps respectively)
