It sounds like a good thing but finding a monitor with it in my price range is difficult. I found a 1440p 144hz VA panel from Costco for 550 which sounds great but it just lacks gsync, is it worth the additional cost? I mean I'm upgrading from a 1080p 60hz monitor, will it make as much of a difference as the resolution and refresh rate?

you don't need it to game at 144hz. if your graphics card(s) can push that high of frame rate without dipping and rising constantly then there's no need. if your gpu(s) push beyond 144fps, you can always limit your fps through rivatuner or nvida inspector.

Not all games let you decap framerate.

I game at 1440p on a 144hz G-Sync. If you want zero screen tearing, you don't have much choice, go for one. Personally, I am going to sell mine once a 4K 144hz G-Sync arrives, which should be within the next 4-5 months.

You could use adaptive vsync to prevent tearing when rendering past 144Hz and get a pretty nice experience even without GSync support

You have a few choices though

So 1000 series cards don't support it, great

That page is just old, that never updated it for Pascal apparently. I've used it with my 1070

I have 0 tolerance for screen tear, so I opted for gsync.

gsync is worth it, had a 1440p 144hz gsync for a few months and I could never go back
