So do I need a highend GPU to use one of those 144Hz monitors ?

If you're playing CS:GO competitively it doesn't take that much to hit 144fps, and the lessened input lag is always great.


this is what i plan on. cs:go is my main game.

Can I change the refresh to maybe 85hz and then I may have better chance to attain 85 FPS steady with my gpu ? Does it only run at 144Hz, can you change it ?

Well you don't need to change the refresh rate. You'll still benefit from having 85FPS w/ a 144hz monitor.

I would take a 60hz IPS monitor over a 120-144hz tn monitor, doubly so in your case since you'd have to turn down settings in a lot of games to hit 144.


QFT.

Both of my current monitors are IPS but my wife's monitors are TN--I find the washed out colors on TN monitors depressing. I paid for a super high-end rig so that games play well AND look good. Now, if you played competitive CS then MAYBE I'd see the point (and by competitive I mean for money).

Just IMO.

Also, to answer the original question--yes, you'd need a high end GPU to run games at respectable frame-rates in order to fully utilize a 144hz monitor.
