I was looking around at some 144hz and possibly thinking about moving my budget a bit. What is the general consensus on 144hz monitors? Are they worth it? I'm currently running a single r9 280x. Would that card be capable of making use of a higher refresh rate?

Related question. Would there be any issue with using one 144hz monitor and a second 60hz monitor? Any sort of compatibility concerns?

If you search www.reddit.com/r/hardwareswap you can find some used/BNIB Qnix qx-2710 Evolution II Korean PLS overclockable monitors. They are 1440p, and will often overclock beyond 110hz with ease.
