Felt like I was playing at 30fps. Never again. Its true, once you go 144hz you never go back.

What is the real difference besides numbers?

Alot smoother gameplay.

Then you look at some of the tests run. Maximum PC did a test a while back with some of their editors. 60 vs 120hz (before 144hz was sort of mainstream). Some couldn't tell the difference. A couple preferred 60hz. But I guess after doing 144hz long enough, 60hz would seem a bit choppy. I'm not willing to sacrifice resolution and graphics settings to run 144hz. 120 is borderline for me.

Its not and you wont know the difference until you actually try it for yourself and play with it for a while. Its like going from 30hz to 60hz, you will notice the difference instantly and you will never want to go back after using it for some time.

Yes the only thing you would have to sacrifice is graphics settings and maybe resolution if your GPU is not powerful enough. But I think sacrificing graphics settings for double the smoothness in gameplay is well worth it.

It's true at first it looks like 30 used to, but after like 10 minutes it looks smooth again, stop exaggerating.

Only if nvidia actually fixed their drivers so GPU can downclock properly when idle with 2 monitors (one 144hz other 60hz) instead of running at 950 mhz.

Yeah you notice the difference, although it depends on monitor size as well, if you playing on a smaller screen the refresh has less impact because the difference between geometry in one frame to the next is a lot less.

And the 60fps limit on vision is a load of rubbish human eyes don't work on frames, also everyones different so some people may notice the refresh more than others.

When I ran my 120 Beng for the first time it was like I had upgraded the video card

Yeah I tried playing on my wife's PC and it was pretty shocking how bad 60 hz and 60 fps looks after being used to 144 hz (or 120 hz with lightboost for quite some time). It was really hard to pay attention to details when making fast turns, and the game just felt like it wasn't running smoothly. I tried changing a lot of settings to get a smoother experience but eventually I realized the monitor was the actual problem.

A friend of mine tried using my screen once and he said he couldn't tell the difference between it and his 60hz, apart from the obvious color difference. When I bought my 144hz screen I certainly felt the difference was like night and day, but I hear it's quite normal for a lot of people to not notice the difference. If anyone wants to upgrade to a high refresh rate monitor, I would strongly suggest trying one out first somewhere (like a PC hardware store) as you might get disappointed.

But yes, going back to 60hz after playing at 120/144 for quite some time seems impossible. I actually prefer 120hz with lightboost rather than 144hz. At first it seemed like everything was gray, but after tweaking contrast, brightness, saturation and colors it's very very good.

Eyes can't see more than 27fps
That's why i have a 30hz monitor

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
This feature is beyond useless now

You don't really know the true glory of higher refresh rates unless you experience it yourself.

This is why I purchased another asus 144hz after going 4k. I sold my old asus for the 4k panel and didn't like it for fps shooters. so I got another 144 panel for shooters only.

My 7950 would struggle badly at 144 fps @1080 no matter what settings unfortunately. I could probably hold close to 120 on medium with all the eye candy turned off. I'll have to deal with my 60hz for now, but when I get my next card it'll be time to step up to at least 120hz.
