    Question Monitor Refresh rate 60hz or 144hz for creative content

    Hello, I'm new here and and I would like to ask if it is ok for video and photo editing on a 144hz monitor? I am told that the best refresh rate for editing is 60hz as it has a better accurate color representation compared to the 144hz? I would like to know if this is true.
