My current monitor is 60hz, 22 inches, and 1680x1050 LCD monitor.
Will there be a noticeable improvement if I upgrade to a 1920x1080 144hz monitor?
I want to use it for watching 1080p movies on Plex and casual gaming. Mostly movies though

Currently Own this Monitor --- HP w2207

Thinking about upgrading to a --- ASUS VH248QE

CPU - Ryzen 2600x

Well there's gonna be quite a noticeable difference there
Think of hz as frame rate so like 60hz is 60 fps and 144hz is 144 fps
Once the game has something moving as a reasonable pace the 60hz monitor will pick it up well but if the object moves faster than the monitor will try it's hardest to keep it at 60hz but it will create motion blur to keep up
If you have a 144hz monitor then it will be perfect with no motion blur but if something is very fast then once again it will create motion blur

So short awnser yes there will be a noticeable difference in gaming but movies not so much however the 1080p quality will look better

Does motion blur mean the game freezes?
Does a 60hz monitor with a good PC cause latency lag or is that just my internet?

Nope it just makes the moving object slightly blurry or sometimes makes it stutter but other than that a 60hz monitor is OK. 144hz monitor can render in the pixels alot faster and there will be much less stutter and motion blur.
It's just your Internet. The monitor isn't a component to the pc the only major difference the monitor can have is by its resolution and hz
If your monitor is 1280x720 then the games you play can only go up to 720p and what this means is it creates less pixels so it gives a better fps but makes the game look a little worse. If your monitor is 1980x1080 you can run games at 1080p which creates more pixels and gives less fps but makes the game just look that much better. I would always reccomended a 1080p monitor at 60hz if you play for fun or don't play that often and a 1080p monitor at 144hz if you game want to be competitive and if you play often
