Hi guys,
I've been thinking about getting myself a 144hz monitor for gaming. I already have a 27” 1080p 75hz monitor which I would then use as a secondary monitor (Spotify, Discord, multitasking, etc.). I was thinking about getting this monitor for about 230€ (260$): https://eu.aoc.com/en/gaming-monitors/27g2u-bk.

But then I found a killer deal for a refurbished 27” 1440p 144hz monitor for the same price: 1440p 144hz.

So, I was asking myself what deal would make the most sense, I have a 1660S so I was wondering if I even would be capable of running 1440p 144hz on my graphics card. I mainly play CS:GO and Valorant and singleplayer games like JC:3.
Does anyone have any experience with using a setup like this? (I've also heard of scaling and performance issues when mixing resolutions and refresh rates)
Also which of the monitors above would make sense?
