144hz vs 4k :D

Post #1 by Flexnl » Tue Apr 04, 2017 3:15 pm

what do you think makes a monitor better nicer ... high refreshrate or high resolution?
i know both is best but if you had to choose, what would you go for?
a 1080p 144hz monitor or a 3840x2160 screen on 60 hz..

1080p 144hz monitor for gaming for sure.
But if you have the grant under the hood,who could say no to a 4k monitor
I'll take both :D

I went from 60hz to 144hz 1080p and its a huge difference! Not so much in image quality but smoothness and as long as you can keep the frames between 100-144 your laughing. Totally changes a 1st person shooter in my opinion.
Now if your not into fps type games then maybe a 4k 60hz would be the best bet as image quality would be far superior :thumbup:
