Do you play on 144hz ?
Brazil PlasticB0Y 
i've been playing on 60hz my whole life, im global, and i think that unless you are trying to go pro, a 144hz monitor, for as pleasant as it may look, its unnecessary.
2019-02-17 23:08
very big difference
2019-02-17 23:09
Brazil PlasticB0Y 
i mean, it is clearly better, but do you really need it ? thats my point. its not like its going to make your pc run faster like a video card, or a processor.
2019-02-17 23:15
No you don't REALLY need it, it's almost entirely about comfort not how well you play. It feels nicer and once you tried it going back to 60Hz is awful but I remember when I first got my 144Hz monitor I was quite disappointed with how little it improved my experience.
2019-02-18 09:21
for me - i didn`t really feel BIG difference when i went from 60 to 144 hz. But after 6 month on 144 hz i sit for a one game on 60hz and i was shocked how could i play on that shit before :D

Exactly, if you want to upgrade your peripherals first look at the mouse/keyboard then headset and only then the monitor. You shouldn't upgrade your monitor if you're not already comfortable with the rest of your setup. It's more like a bonus not a necessity

im on that path ! first i bought a Logitech g403 (mouse) and a g240 (mousepad), then i bought a Logitech H110 ( headset ) i'll wait a little to buy a 144hz monitor, its a bigger step.
2019-02-20 03:10
Actually, the difference in ms when u get your information is quite vast. Your 60hz monitor only gives you information 60 times a second, while a 144Hz or higher will do it much more thus bringing down delay. The difference in holding corners or controlling your spray is like day and night. :p To edit: I understand the difference isn't as noticeable on a 60 tick matchmaking setup but on 128 tick servers you'll know for sure who has a 144Hz+ monitor and if someone's still stuck on 60/75Hz.
2019-02-18 09:28
lulululul bullshit detector level over 9000 xDD
2019-02-18 09:35
Check the facts. =) I used to play 120Hz already on a CRT.
2019-02-18 09:36
I know the facts and I used 60 144 240 hz. And I have to LMAO when amateur players with reaction time of 100-150ms talk about day and night differences in holding corners because the monitor `s refreshrate 10ms higher xDDDDD
2019-02-18 09:46
10ms is a lot, so why are you laughing? Are you one of those retards that just "xD" at everyone they dont like and then think you are the fucking bomb by thinking you know shit other people dont (xD man omg XDDDD you dont know that lmao xDDDD xd XD dXXX) when you actually dont?
2019-02-18 09:53
bring something on the table or stfu. Ask yourself what kind of retard you are. Giving a false statement of 4 words + 60 words random flame.
2019-02-18 10:03
I suggest you to try two players of the same skill level and other one goes 60Hz and next to him other one plays 144Hz. This will show you the differences real time. With a 144Hz monitor you can actually hold corners, with a 60Hz monitor you'll pretty much never win against a challengers advantage without prefiring. These are facts that you're trying to deny with your perception of reflexes... How about actually bringing something to the table yourself. :p
2019-02-18 10:20
lul very scientific xD "2 players on the same skill level" aha. how did you measured skill level ? and is it exactly enough? lul. "This will show you the differences real time. With a 144Hz monitor you can actually hold corners, with a 60Hz monitor you'll pretty much never win against a challengers advantage without prefiring." aha. or it`s because the "2 players on the same skill level" and the whole setup of your "experiment" is ridiculously unlegit . that you even use the word "facts" in this circumstances shows that you are a fcking clown.
2019-02-18 10:37
Well, something you can take out of it that the 144Hz player (even if they swap setups) will be having a clear advantage. It's scientific enough to prove the case. You're doing nothing trying to debunk it and again giving nothing to the conversation. Shall ignore you from now on, have a blast.
2019-02-18 10:38
Your writing suggests that you THINK you know what you're talking about, but everyone can easily see that there is no ground in what you say. You have no counter argument of any kind, other than the good old "lululul you're dumb" and lest we forget the fantastic "xD" term which just fits in everywhere and really shows how much of a superior human you are compared to me. But you're still absolutely and completely wrong when it comes to this subject, so I suggest you learn some fcking manners, and research the subject (maybe find out whats wrong and whats right??) before you start throwing insults and wrongful information at people.
2019-02-18 11:05
Well i prefer his arguments when i see people arguing about 10ms making big difference, literally 'lmao xD' is the only comment needed here
2019-02-18 11:20
Well its not true, so what you like is irrelevant.
2019-02-18 11:44
the true is in the middle but at least he isnt any gay kid who is arguing about 10ms making any noticable difference because this is not what game is about
2019-02-18 12:10
I never mentioned the 10ms thingy, but there is a Massive difference between 60hz and 144hz when youre holding a corner, nobody can dispute that fact, but this guy sure tries his best. He just aswell claim that pigs control the government, it doesnt make it true though, does it?
2019-02-18 12:26
Hz arguments are on your site tho, i havent said anything about it before
2019-02-18 12:58
Then what is your point exactly?
2019-02-18 14:33
Arguing about 10ms as i said?
2019-02-18 14:35
100-150ms? That is insanely good numbers. 120ms is physically best reaction time a human can have. 180-200ms is considered good and the average is 250ms.
2019-02-18 11:10

You dont need nothing else except to live and die but 144Hz feels WAYYYYYYYYY better and its WAAYYYYYYYYYY easier to play with it
2019-02-18 09:34
it doesnt make your pc run faster but it lets you see the game at a higher framerate meaning YOU can be faster.

Probably the dumbest shit I've read today
2019-02-17 23:16
Maybe it's just in my head. Also sometimes my fps are like 120-140, maybe that's why 120hz fits me better.
2019-02-17 23:17
fps thing makes sense
2019-02-17 23:24
It's just in your head. The fps is not affected by the screen. The Graphic card will draw the image regardless of what the screen will update, Then the screen will just pick up the image that the graphic card has drawn 60/120/144 times per second, depending on your settings.
2019-02-17 23:26
He isn't complaining about his FPS being affected by the refresh rate of his monitor, he is saying he's running on a stable fps lower then his maximum Hz. If you're running at 144Hz the gpu will try to provide the monitor with a new image when it requests for it or the same image will be shown twice. It can cause some tearing and other issues to run fps below your refreshrate. It certainly feels more choppy. Better to have a excess pool of frames for the monitor to instantly get something when it's ready then making it wait thus you should run Hz below your stable FPS.

Canada flame7 
what's a "must buy" by your standards, I mean where's the line for you? I'd rather not play CS if I dont have 200+ fps and at least 120hz... I just don't enjoy the game, I'd go even further and say the same about a mechanical keyboard and a decent mouse. I'm not just talking, when I started traveling for business I bought a gaming laptop to kill the down times and I fucked hated it, even tho it was a decent laptop everything felt suboptimal and just didn't cut it for me, sold the laptop as soon as I returned home.
2019-02-20 02:47
I would say that good fps (a better computer) is more important than 120+ hz monitors. Buy everything if you can of course but good fps with a shit-monitor will work while a great monitor with shit-fps will not, they will cancel eachother out.
2019-02-20 02:53
World ///fuck 
What??? When you buy one/test one you wouldnt say that. Everything is smoother not just cs...
2019-02-17 23:37
let me explain, more hz more smooth. easy as that, the game will feel and play better. it wil not give you tactical skills, but it will affect your aim/spray and movement.

2019-02-18 05:56
It's not nice but it's 144Hz and it's cheap. You need to pay quite a lot for a nice 144Hz monitor.
2019-02-18 09:19
its not nice? there is also a 24 inch acer predator 144hz for $280, i know predator monitors are top of the line
2019-02-18 21:39
I mean it works, it's 144Hz with no ghosting or blurriness and the mount is pretty good, you can rotate the screen however you want and the mount can go so high that you could use it in portrait mode if you wanted to (this is cool if you want different monitors at the same height or if you have a weird desk or smth). The issue is that, like every entry level TN panel, the colors suck major dick. So if you play anything other than CS or watch movies etc and you care at least a little bit about color accuracy and contrast then you will not have a great experience. I have it and I don't hate it nor do I regret buying it because if you buy new it's pretty much the best 144Hz monitor in the price range. So basically it's not ASUS' fault it's just the limitations of TN panels. Other panels like IPS or QLED are more expensive (sometimes A LOT more) but they provide much better colors and contrast (as well as brightness for QLED but that's not too important on a monitor unless you play outside for whatever reason)
2019-02-18 22:24
i mean i use 100% digital vibrance so the colors are extremely rich, i use an ips display rn, maybe because i use 100% DV the colors wont be so faded out

2019-02-18 04:39
This is either fake or it was stolen, QLED is expensive as shit because it's a proprietary technology from SAMSUNG
2019-02-18 09:17
Not fake nor stolen. I bought it from the biggest PC part retailer in all of WA (A state with over 2.5 million people). It was an ex-demo unit without any packaging. It's this exact one but it's 24'' and not 27'' :
2019-02-18 09:30
Yeah but you're still retarded for acting like people are dumb for buying cheap monitors, this one is supposed to be worth like half a month of minimum wage. It's like you're flexing after winning the lottery
2019-02-18 09:26
I was proving to him that it's possible to get one for cheap if you get lucky and are patient. Not flexing lmao. If you are living in the US it's much easier to get bargains than here down under. Everyone just looks at brand new prices instead of waiting for sales or bargains on the used market to pop up, why?
2019-02-18 09:30
You never said you got lucky though. And although it's true that TN sucks (especially compared to QLED) it's perfect for CS as it's cheap and has a very low latency
2019-02-18 09:30
While I did get lucky, I believe it's possible to get bargains without any luck and just some patience. I bought almost all of my things used because I'm a high school student and until recently didn't have the money to buy anything new. A lot of the things I bought had nothing to do with luck and just patience on the used market. TN panels are really not worth it unless you are trying to go pro for whatever reason. If you want the best of both worlds, there are 144hz VA panels that are just a tiny bit more than the TN versions. Get one of them second-hand and you are set.

Everything looks better at 144hz, you can get a kick ass computer to run 300 fps. After you get 144hz monitor you think to yourself why the fuck have i been using 60hz. Just few days ago bought new GPU, which only works with DP cable. My monitor had only DVI for 144hz. For a day i was playing 60hz, oh boy.. Didn't feel like playing anything because of that.

I have 144hz monitor for almost a year now. I was global before with 60hz 4ms monitor. So no u dont need 144hz to be global or "good" at the game. The thing is if u play a lot of fps games and have a solid PC then it just feels soo much better, fluid, smoother. The 230€ I paid for my viewsonic monitor is the best 230€ I ever spent...
2019-02-18 11:48
It is a massive difference. If your goal is being global in valve mm you can also play with 30 fps and a wheel, so that is not really a point to make.
2019-02-18 12:12
it is mandatory at a given level.

2019-02-18 15:52
im not even overexaggerating. it really feels that way to me. ofc after some time you get kind of used to it but still...
2019-02-18 15:54
100hz CRT ftw.
2019-02-18 13:37
+1 But it's problematic to play on 1920x1080.
2019-02-18 14:20
And the weight of the monitor itself.
2019-02-18 16:03
Yeah, it weighs so fucking much. Heavier than my TV, I swear to God.
2019-02-18 16:04
It's a decent workout at least.
2019-02-18 16:05
Never thought about that actually..

240Hz its amazing - Alienware AW2518HF with Free-Sync
2019-02-18 15:55
NT Anomaly It's kinda expensive

g-sync is expensive but freesync monitors not that expensive i paid 300 eur for this
2019-02-19 19:34
Is there a big difference between those syncs?

144hz is daam good, not gonna lie. When I tried to use a 60hz monitor again now looks crap for gaming (and even but not much for desktop use). So yes you should upgrade.

Definitely not necessary, but it's definitely very nice to have. 144hz monitors are really cheap these days too and to be fair, gaming is one of my least expensive ways of spending free time so why not.
2019-02-18 16:05
its nice to have but not necessary, you can still be just as good if you dont wanna go pro.
2019-02-18 16:06
just try to play on high elo faceit 2.5k ++ u will see the real hz difference;d
2019-02-18 18:40
im lvl 10 on faceit with 75hz, and idk dude. 144hz are pretty expensive and i would buy it only for cs, because my monitor is pretty ok otherwise with no need of upgrade.
2019-02-18 18:40
after 1 month of use on 144, i tried 60hz, safe to say my eyes bled.
2019-02-18 19:24
144hz from 60hz literally made me from Silver Elite to Coldzera like no joke. I could see things so much better cause it was that much smoother
2019-02-20 02:51
1. 144 better 2. you're not even global, we are friends on steam

I'm playing on 240hz and would never go back to 144hz.
2019-02-20 08:18
Yes I do, and it feels much better for my eyes
2019-02-20 08:18
Is the jump from 144hz to 240hz worth the upgrade?
2019-02-21 13:04
From 60hz to 144hz the difference is very noticeable. From 144hz to 240hz not that much. Furthermore, you need a great pc to have 240fps every time, if not it's not worth it. Remember that hz kind of reflect fps.

I've never tried 144Hz, I'm playing on 75Hz. Because of the guys like you - Globals with 60Hz, I'm not blaming my gear for me not being as good (DMG now). But I guess that more Hz does give an advantage.

Very big difference from 60hz to 144hz although make sure u have steady fps and atleast 250fps+
