Monitor refresh rate

(1/2) > >>

I am building a new pc and am at the monitor purchasing step. I would like a 4K monitor but am wanting recommendations. Also when looking at monitors is there a lot of difference between a 120  & 144 refresh rate thatís noticeable?  I have an rtx 3080 card with a ryzen 9 5950x cpu. Also 32g ram. Thank you in advance!

I would recommend getting a 2K (1440p) ~144-165Hz monitor, with GSYNC/FreeSync. There's not much noticeable difference between 120 and 144Hz, but its still nice to have overall. You'll notice more between monitors with GSYNC/FreeSync than without.

Hammock:
Iíve seen those terms gsync/freesync but need to read up on them since I donít recall what they were about. Appreciate your advice and thank you!  How about screen size?  I was thinking 27Ē.

MSgt Minatozaki:
GSYNC/Freesync helps to reduce stutters and tearing when playing games. This video is a good basic explanation, and https://www.testufo.com/vrr is a good site to simulate the differences. 27" is a good size and is perfect for 1440p resolution as anything lower in my opinion doesn't look as good.

Hammock:
Thank you for those videos. Definitely helped ALOT in my understanding of it all!
