Then educate me. After using an OC'd 110 Hz korean 1440p panel (purchased 3 years ago to test the waters) and using a Dell P2715q as my secondary monitor for photo editing, I refuse to buy anything less than a 120 Hz panel. If you are describing a monitor as "gaming" in 2016, spending that kind of cash I don't think you should accept a 60 Hz panel. Try and school me all you want about latency/response time but that is still my opinion. It may be nice, but I would be kicking myself if in 1-2 years the same monitor was available with a higher refresh rate because it seriously is like night and day.

uneducated indeed. Latency/Response time doesn't make any difference. Basically you're saying 1980x1080 and refresh rate > 5K resolution at 60hz. You're weighing speed vs quality of picture. Which also comes to speed if your graphics can't hit past 144 frames while gaming its worthless (the same goes for high resolution, still need to be able to push out the pixels). Either way the bandwidth of display port/hdmi 1.3a is allocated to either to pixels or refresh rate while 120Hz and 144Hz are always desirable it's hard to automatically for that since DP bandwidth hasn't gotten there yet for 1080p resolutions without overlocking.

It's a waste of time to explain it to you but i will, plus this monitor is 100 Hz.
If you can get over 100 frames, then 120 Hz and 144 Hz are viable options. But a better frame rate isn't everything. Have you ever heard of 4k resolution? or any resolutions greater than 1080P (1980x1080) for gaming?. This monitor is 3440x1440 at 100 Hz (almost 5 million pixels) I'd take that over 1980x1080 144 Hz (2 million pixels)

good luck getting constant 100fps in battlefield 1 at 3440x1440, that would be a chore even for sli 1080s.

Either way refresh rate isn't key. It's a balance between both that's the best. To make an statement saying one is better than the other while looking into a small box is trivial

Yeah, uh starting off with this statement you clearly can't be trusted. It is pretty obvious that response time is one factor in determining your monitors performance. Go read some forums about people arguing over response times for TVs and you will see some pretty large threads. I'll give you that the differences with computer monitors is not nearly as drastic as with TVs, but it is still a factor.

One way to make yourself look foolish is to put incorrect words into someone's mouth.

I understand your argument (which is rudimentary... I'm not "uneducated" as you guys state. With that said, what the hell are you talking about? DP 1.4 (which is in my GTX 1080) supports 4K @ 120 Hz.


OKAY: The deal was nice (looks like $1200 is the going rate at Newegg and elsewhere). The monitor is in fact quite nice, but for me I would not be shelling out this amount of money when I can almost guarantee there will be a monitor that fits my bill in the next 1-2 years. My monitors tend to last at least 6 years before I replace them (as mentioned above, the P2715q I bought replaced a 2005fpw that I had for 10 years) so I would not be happy with myself if I purchased this, since it does not meet my desired minimum specs.

im not arguing with your point. having both a 120hz 1080p panel and a 60hz 1440p panel, i would happily take 100hz@uwqhd as an excellent balance.
