144hz or 240hz monitor
apEX | 
Is it actually worth it to spend hundreds more for a 240hz instead of 144hz for CS or is the difference not significant enough?

It's a slight difference. If you have the money then just get it.

2020-02-25 05:01
if you're getting 240 fps at least.. why not?

I come from a 60hz one, and a bunch of people have been saying that you don't even see a difference between 144hz and 240hz

You really don’t, at least I don’t. But usually when you get up to 240hz you get into GSync versions, which you can most definitely tell a difference with an Nvidia card.
2020-02-21 04:37
go for friend house who has 240hz and look at it . then swap to 144hz you will see the difference even in windows when you move cursor a bunch of people ( propably silvers or mg1 )
2020-02-21 04:47
the difference is noticeable but really minimal. it's far more important to have 1440p than to get 240hz, i.e. 1440p / 144hz > 1080p / 240hz (unless you want a second monitor just for CS)
2020-02-21 05:01
Was thinking about getting a laptop, so what's better to do, get a 1440p laptop with 144hz or 1080 with 240hz?
2020-02-22 00:13
1080 is probably fine for a laptop. basically you usually want at the very least a 24' monitor for 1440p (more commonly 27'+ is recommended) because the smaller the monitor the less noticeable a higher resolution (in games/movies...). and I assume your laptop screen will be less than 24', so not that many benefits. I guess the only counter argument would be that you sit somewhat closer to your laptop screen and in windows a higher resolution gives you more space (but also everything is smaller, so personal preference). probably not enough to make it worth though. anyway, one of the main reason why I think people should buy 1440 in 2020 is because it will become a fairly standard resolution for gaming in the next 1-2 years. e.g. cheapest gpu for 1440 gaming is like $350 now, so $200 (or less) for a 1440 gpu isn't too far away with the next gen gpus coming out in the next 6 months. however, you probably can't upgrade your laptop's gpu anyway, so by the time 1440 becomes cheap you might as well get a new laptop, hardware for laptops is always more expensive anyway, so it will probably take 1-2 years longer than on desktop. sorry, this is getting kind of long. but some other thoughts: 240hz isn't worth it either way on a laptop; also why don't you just buy laptop with a cheap screen but also buy a monitor and connect your laptop to it?
2020-02-22 01:28
Why is 240hz not worth it for a laptop? If I just buy like a decent 60hz laptop and buy an external monitor, I'd lose the whole point of a laptop which is being practical when you move a lot :(
2020-02-22 02:41
the difference between 144hz and 240hz is really not that big in-game but you pay a lot more. but at least with a monitor you permanently benefit from it as monitors usually age slower than PCs (especially gpus) while with a laptop screen you end up replacing it every time you buy a new laptop. but it depends on your budget, I guess. but then if you care enough about your gaming setup that you are willing to pay for 240hz then how are you okay with playing on a laptop screen? as for the moving, are you really moving that much? moving a monitor isn't that hard IMO but if you are moving to different countries or business travel a lot or something then it makes sense I guess.
2020-02-22 03:19
I spend less than a year in one country and that will be going on for the next 4 years hence my need for a laptop instead of a whole PC also hence my avoidance of external monitors :(
2020-02-22 03:38
fair enough, makes sense then. I guess it also depends on whether you just play CS or also AAA games. if it's just CS and you are okay with spending enough for a high end gaming laptop then why not 240hz. for CS a good gaming laptop should last for years. If you care about AAA games / graphics then 240hz is more questionable as your laptop will get outdated faster and no gpu gets 240+ fps in AAA games anyway.
2020-02-22 03:55
Thanks for your help. I main CS anyways and just play some other FPS on the side. Wanted a 240hz only for CS, I don't mind if I get like 150 fps on r6, it is what it is, shit game anyways.

why 1440p monitor if competitive settings is 1080p at most and in CS is even lower ?
2020-02-25 02:46
mainly for other games

There is difference between 144hz and 240hz but not as big compared to 60hz to 144hz. If you have money to spend no reason to pass on 240hz tho

I mean unless you don’t like just spending cash for a return that you won’t notice. Imo it’s like going from 2666 memory to 3600 or SATA to NVME. You aren’t going to notice in gaming.

if you get two 144hz monitors then it would be over 240hz
2020-02-21 04:39
2020-02-21 04:40
True also don't forget to download more ram.
2020-02-25 04:33
240fps constant + gsync you notice a fair bit, especially when you go back to 144hz.

I would rather have 2560x1440 IPS 144hz monitor

144hz should be good enough for anyone that's not pro. Just buy that and save the rest.
2020-02-21 05:07
i have Acer XB270HU 2560*1440 IPS 144hz and XL2546 1920x1080 240hz but play csgo just used XL2546 .
2020-02-21 05:08
very small difference between 144 and 240. I would say its not worth upgradeing if you dont have a real reason for example old monitor breaking.

I notice quite a bit difference between 144 Hz ASUS VG248QE and 240 Hz Acer KG251QD, the 240 Hz is smoother.
2020-02-22 00:17
lmao just visit internet cafes and check by yourself
2020-02-22 00:21
Rather not, I kinda don't trust any UK person that goes to internet cafes.
2020-02-22 02:43
I could understand if you asked this in 2016 but we are in 2020 now.
2020-02-22 00:22
Been gaming on a 60hz laptop for years homie. Finally decided to save up and upgrade.
2020-02-22 02:42
144 = semi-pro or dedicated player above = pro or hardcore players dont spend more than 5% of your capital on a new monitor. 144hz is great
2020-02-22 01:36
am hardcore gamr B)
2020-02-22 05:17
I bought one and cant recommend it. I mean there is a difference but not as sick as 60 to 144. On top of that you need a really good pc to get 240 fps on the games you play.
2020-02-22 01:38
RTX 2070/2060, i7-9750H should be enough though right?
2020-02-22 02:44
for cs obviously... but not for games like pubg e.g the rtx version for laptop is way worse than for a desktop :D but yeah for cs it should be fine
2020-02-22 02:45
Yeah I am maining CS, so we saying over 240 fps on CS with these specs?
2020-02-22 02:52
yeah should be more than enough. at least if you play on low settings.
2020-02-22 02:52
shit, turns out it doesn't support G-sync, would you know if it's a big deal?
2020-02-22 02:56
i am no expert, but it would if you are dropping frames... i highly doubt this laptop can get you 240 in a full dm but in a 5vs5 it should be fine
2020-02-22 02:57
Pubg is dog shit omptimized, still in beta after 3 years pretty much.
2020-02-25 04:36
I would buy a 144Hz IPS panel rather than 240Hz VA panel. Better colors and contrast. Screens like LG 27GL850 or ASUS VG27AQ. The ASUS one is 165Hz.
2020-02-22 02:53
Yeah sadly, I forgot to add in the main comment that i'm talking about a laptop but thanks for your input.
2020-02-22 02:55
Oh, well GL on your search. I'm just gonna say 144Hz is enough for CS. I reckon ur not going to try to grind to FPL-C with your laptop. :D 144Hz = enough for almost everyone 240Hz = if you are a hardware nerd or a super 1337 gamer

if money isn't a big issue then get the 240hz. A monitor is a big investment which is going to last a long time and you can definitely tell a difference between 144hz and 240.

I have 27’ 144hz and my friend 24’ 240hz for 150 eur more. Really no point in spending more. Not that noticeable unless you want to play professionally.
2020-02-22 03:48
I want to finally get out of rank B esea, I need that advantage since I suck.
2020-02-22 05:18
Ukraine Purple21 
You’ll suck the same in 240 since it’s not making you more skilled, it gives you a tiny advantage which in mm would be compared to maybe 1 rank
2020-02-25 01:19
already globul in MM
2020-02-25 09:15
240 hz won't give you advantage if you suck.
2020-02-25 05:00
2020-02-25 09:16
60hz to 144hz is a 8 millisecond difference. 144hz to 240hz is a 4 millisecond difference. So there's a pretty big diminishing returns. The first being a huge difference, the second being half as much of a difference. You can perform to your maximum using 144hz, but 240hz wouldn't hurt. Just run two monitors, 144hz on one side, 240hz on the other if you get a new one.

it depends how good you are if you are noob you wont see 144hz 240hz difference if you have good aim then you will see
2020-02-25 04:46
i think you can play just fine with 144hz and there is no real competitive advantage but for me there was a significant psychological difference and i aim much better now. it could be the dyac, not sure
2020-02-25 04:51
If you want to play pubg so go for 240 But if its just for cs 144 enough
2020-02-25 05:01
It doesn't make any sense what you're saying, there are a lot more pixels to move on PUBG so logically the difference would be even smaller on such a game ?
2020-02-25 12:33
I'd sat it's worth it, as more and more people are now getting monitors with higher refresh rates, There is a noticeable difference between the two. Not like going from 60 to 144, but there is a difference.
