Gaming monitors need to display the action fast, which is why you need one with a high refresh rate as well as low input lag. With a gaming monitor, you get performance that TVs cannot touch, which can make the difference in competitive gaming.
In this article, we’ll be looking at our favorite gaming monitors with robust refresh rates of 144Hz (144 times per second).
For many setups, a 144 Hz monitor delivers fast enough refresh rates to deliver a sense of fluidity to movements, it’s this fast response that creates a realistic-feeling connection to the virtual world. The result? Racing a car or flying a plane or controlling a character feels more like a simulation and less like an arcade game. Actually, we shouldn’t say that, because mastery of classic arcade games also benefits from displays with high frame rates and low lag.
Of course, there’s more to a good monitor than just the refresh rate. Other things to take into consideration include the resolution, the robustness of the monitor stand and it’s adjustability, plus many inputs it offers and whether it’s just HDMI, or if it also supports DisplayPort. And then there’s the question of whether you should invest in a monitor that does HDR well, or if you should prioritize other performance-related attributes, like support for variable refresh rate (through either AMD Freesync or NVIDIA G-Sync or both).
