is 144Hz for intense on your hardware in any way shape or form then 60 hz?

For gaming, your PC has to generate over 2x the frames, so yes

Not if you have your framerates uncapped. Having a lower hz monitor doesn't give any sort of benefit to the lifespan of your hardware. I would say your response is quite misleading.

yes. especially in gaming (which is really the only time 60hz+ monitors are useful) the increased framerates require significantly more powerful hardware in order to reach (assuming similar resolutions and graphical settings inside the games). For example, BF1 could be played at 60+ fps with something like an i5 7500/R5 1500 + GTX 1060 6GB/RX480 with ultra settings just fine.... want 144+ fps out of the same game with the same settings (assuming this is 1080p)? better get yourself a gtx 1080ti + 7700k/RX1600x (or better) and overclock it.

If you have hardware that is capable of outputting alot higher than 60 fps then a 144hz monitor is generally a good idea. It's not going to shorten the lifespan of your hardware so no need to worry about how intense it is on your hardware.

I thought the question was whether it was harder for a PC to run not whether it would shorten its lifespan.

Yeah I'm questioning what the original intent of the question was now. It seems unclear as to what they are asking.

Also technically you don't have to run games at 144 fps on a 144hz monitor which is why I thought the question was different.

When it comes to gaming higher FPS or hz is always the goal, but just slapping a 144 hz monitor on your system doesn't mean you will get that in a game.  Its up to your video card and other components to keep up with that monitor.  Now when it comes to just windows and office most any modern machine will out put the 144hz but that is point less unless you want supper smooth mouse movements.   :)  So if your not gaming I would not worry about the monitor having a high refresh rate, but one the same note there is not reason to avoid one if it has the other features you need.  its not going to slow down or eat up your cpu gpu bandwidth too much.  If in some weird case it is you can manual set the refresh rate in the settings.

You need a system that is powerful enough to make use of it, or be willing to sacrifice some visual quality.  I tried to talk a friend out of spending $300 on a 144hz monitor, but he wouldn't listen.  Now he's running games at ~60fps on a 144hz monitor because he doesn't want to use anything besides Ultra.

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

you could always run a little above 60fps on a 144hz monitor. even a slight jump from 60hz to for example 75hz is a noticeable change in smoothness and motion clarity. with that said not that many games will run or accept 144hz, but most competitive games do and usually that's what most buy a 144hz monitor for.

Would getting 60 frames per second, be and harder at 144Hz? If so why? To my understanding it wouldn't be any harder for my PC to render 60 frames a second at the same resolution.

If your computer can render 144 frames per second, then it will have no problem with 60.

No. The refresh rate of a monitor remains independent to the frames rendered by the PC. Switching the refresh rate won't affect how many frames a PC can render.

..............the two are (more or less) completely unrelated..... Hz is how many times your monitor refreshes the image being displayed. FPS is how many frames per second your computer is rendering. If you have a 60Hz display, you can be running at a higher fps, but you will only see the 60fps, because that is all your display will allow. If you have a 144Hz display, it will show up to 144 frames each second.

What is your questions? Post seems all over the place. 

I want to get a 144 Hz Monitor, my current monitor is 60 Hz. Both will be 1080p. Can I achieve the same frame rate, and different refresh rates?

I dont undestand the question either. But if you were talking about a 144Hz display, no It isnt harder to get 60 fps at a 144Hz display. If you were talking about a pc capable of 144Hz, no again, It wouldnt be harder to get 60 fps.

 

Edit: Yes, as I said before.

If you can achieve 144 fps in the game then you are fine. The 144hz will run at 144 while the 60 stays at 60.

The refresh rate is the maximum number of times your monitor can pull up a frame. 144Hz = 144fps.

Okay, but to take advantage of 144Hz, it would be ideal to have a high-end set up, to see the difference in triple A titles, correct?

Yes It would. But since your display will outlast your PC by 2 or 3 times (and then It could be your secondary display) If you can afford a 144Hz display, I suggest you to do It and youll upgrade the rest of your HW later.

To take a full advantage of a 144Hz refresh rate, it would be ideal for the PC to deliver 144FPS. But really, if your PC can render about 100FPS, then that's good enough.
