    Question Can I run a 144Hz monitor at 75Hz?

    I want to buy a new computer nowadays and I want to buy a new display too. The thing is I want to buy an RTX 2060 and it won't give me 144+ FPS on all games. So I wanted to buy a 75Hz monitor. The problem is I can't find a well built, sturdy 75Hz IPS monitor with height adjustment(it's quite...

    Question 60hz on my 144hz monitor is not smooth

    I have a lc24fg73fqmxuf (144hz) monitor and when I set it to 60 hz it doesn't feel smooth on desktop and games. I've also watched 60 fps videos and they feel smoother than my desktop. I wonder why.

    Question Can't figure out how to get 144hz on my monitor.

    I have a monitor, Acer GN246HL, which can reach 144hz according to the eBay listing. However, the HDMI port won't allow for 144hz so I will have to use a DVI cable instead but my PC only has a DVI in port, not a DVI out port. I don't really know what I'm supposed to do, I'm not particularly...

    Question RX 5700 XT vs dual 1440p 144hz monitors

    So, I've been using the RX 5700 XT for a little while now, but recently got a second monitor. They're both the same 1440p 144hz monitors, but when I attach both to the GPU it'll cause games to crash because the card might not be strong enough? Anyone with experience with this card who can tell...

    My cat has recently broken my monitor by pushing it, and now I'm searching for a new one. I am trying to choose between the Dell S2419HGF and the Acer XF240Hbmjdp. Which one should I go for?
