Should I bother getting a 144hz monitor with a gtx760 and i5 4590?

I'm tempted to get that one super high rated Asus monitor on Amazon.

Personally I'd say no, to hit that magic framerate (or even 120fps) you'll have to significantly drop visual settings (assuming 1080p) to keep it stable. .

opinion is based on my own use of a GTX770

I agree, and that's based on my experience with a 670 and a 770. What's dumb though is that a couple years ago people would probably have said yes.

If you have the horse power for it oh yeah its totally worth it. I hit that sweet 120fps- 144fps for most games with max settings and it's smooth and fast as butter. I can probably go higher but I put a frame rate cap at 144hz.

People are still going to come in the thread and over estimate the power of a 760 and say its worth it, just wait.

The difference is if you're sig is correct you have SLI 770s, he has a 760 horsepower isn't there. Maybe if he SLI's though.

it's very hard to max the framerate on recent high-end games while keeping high settings, but it still mostly gets rid of screen tearing without using terrible vsync

Of course it's worth it.
Unless, of course, you're one of those people that judges the value of a high refreshrate monitor by the ability to hit the maximum displayable framerate of said monitor in the most demanding game available at max settings, or something stupid like that.

I probably won't be attempting to max the most demanding games. It's just that my current monitor has these lines running on the side from when i dropped it, and my other monitor has broken power button and if it get's touched the wrong way it turns off until it gets wiggled back into the proper place.


I'd be happy to hit over 60 fps on upcoming titles. But i wouldn't mind hitting high frame rates on League/Dota/Diablo/whatever older game i'll be playing.

Then the 144hz monitor is right for you.
Trust me, it's worth it. :)
