i am looking for a ips 2k monitor, I have these two options
Asus mg279q 27 " (144 hz)
viewsonic vx3276 32" (75 hz)
I am going to play non competitive games with avg fps around 100-120 (GTX 1080 at 2k)
Price difference is huge so where should I go ?
also is super tech ips different (viewsonic spec)? is it good.?
Also is 32 " screen size ok for both 1440p and 1080p?
point is : are higher hz worth it when you have low FPS (comparatively, since gtx 1080 rarely touches 144 hz at 2k)

you can only use the frames your monitor can show you. so a 75 hz monitor will only show 75 fps no matter how many the gpu is making. this is why it is so silly to see folks trying to get like 1000 fps in any game. anything above your refresh rate is wasted money all around.

if you're gonna make around 100-120 fps then the 144 hz monitor is probably not worth the extra cash for those few extra frames shown. if you were gonna max the 144 all the time, then it would be worth it.
