There's no way of telling. Graphics have made a LOT of improvements over the past few years. Look back at how irrelevant a GTX 750 Ti or GTX 660 is for high end gaming.

Also, I meant get a second 144 hz display instead of upgrading the internal display. 

Something like an Asus VG248QE or similar 24 inch 144hz monitor is usually around $200 USD. 

Hi guys! i was planning to buy a laptop however I was confused on which should I choose, 1060 with an ips monitor or 1050ti with a 144hz one. I know the 1060 is a better choice than the 1050ti but the 144hz is tempting! I know the 1050ti can’t really get 100+  fps on most games,so it’s either I get a new monitor for the 1060 or get an egpu for the 1050ti.

 

Any advice or help is greatly appreciated! Thanks :))

what do you want to play? do you care about color accuracy? what laptop are we talking about?

Helios 300 is the laptop and the games I would want to play are rpg games and fps games.

if you want to play competitive, the 144 hertz panel would be the best choise. If not, I would choose the 60 hertz. but I'm that guy that doesn't notice it that much. kinda personal prefference here

def. go for 1060  and later on you still can sell the monitor and get a better one.

 

I also recommend getting a 580, wich has on pair perf. and ich cheaper. Then you might also be able to afford a better display in the first place 

FOLDING MONTH 2021! GOGOGO and save on some heating costs 🙂

Is the difference between the 144 and 60hz really noticeable?

for some it is, for me it isn't that much. I can't tell if you notice it.

Get the 1060, and if you actually want to use 144Hz, get an external monitor. OR if you feel adventurous, you can buy the 144Hz panel for the Helios 300 and swap it out yourself.

Yeah! That’s what I was thinking swapping the monitor, but the thing is, the place where I live is a place where it’s hard to find a monitor for a laptop.

Ohhhh I would love to rant about this... 

Long story short, if you play any kind of competitive gaming, (CSGO, Overwatch, League of Legends, Rainbow Six: Siege, Fortnite, etc) you can ABSOLUTELY tell the difference between 60hz and 144hz. The higher skilled and practiced can often tell the difference between 144hz and 240hz. 

I don't even qualify myself as a high-skill player, plus I have a genetic condition that slows down my reaction time and I can STILL tell the difference.

It's expensive, but if you want the 144hz display in the laptop, you can buy something like this and swap it out. Linus actually did a video covering this not too long ago with the helios 300.

It's not hard, if someone doesn't have a lot of repair experience it can be really scary opening up your laptop and replacing parts. Even if it is just the display.

So I should stick with the 144hz and just buy an egpu if the 1050ti won’t be enough or buy the 1060 version then hopefully find an inexpensive 144hz monitor in my place.

Personally, I would do the latter. eGPU setups loose performance when you are looping the video back, and a 144hz monitor would probably be the cheaper upgrade anyway.

Yeahh..about that, I can’t find a 120hz screen replacement here in the Philippines...would the 1050ti still be a good gpu for at least 3-5 years?
