Hello guys,

I mainly play Bf4, some bf3 and rarely Bf1. My scores, my skill, my k/d is getting higher everyday,
But i feel like 60hz is becoming like a "limit". Once i played on 144hz and it was another planet.
I don't play any competitive cups, but i think i would get an extra advantage with 144hz monitor.
I own an i5 4460 and a RX 470, i'm playing @1280x720 since i feel way better and i feel it's smoother. Graphics is on low, 150% resolution scale and getting between 110-180fps.
I actually have 200/250€ for a new monitor, and i thought Acer GN246HL was a great deal.

So, is it really worth it, since i don't play competitive?

    When I upgraded from 60hz to 144hz, the difference was night and day, it was so smooth and responsive, although I didn't notice any sudden jump in my performance but if I switch back to 60hz in BF4 now I notice the input lag and find it a little hard to aim so there is some sort of advantage due to the quicker response but even if you don't get a huge performance jump, I would say 144hz is worth it just for the smoothness, in my opinion.

    Yeah the 144hz would be smoother and a more enjoyable experience. I wouldn't pat yourself too much on the back with a 46% win rate. Or if you have a 24" and using 1280x720. It may feel smoother, but it also gives you a little more advantage vs using 1080. It brings targets closer and makes them a little bigger. If you use those res on the new monitor, then you are being competitive or hard up.

    I'd recommend you to look better, when in a complete round my worst score is 40-15, my best is about 85-27.
    And a normal tdm ends up with 20-3, 19-1, 24-4. I mean.

    I'm looking at BF4 and it says you have a win rate of 46%. No? It's a team game, not DM and there's no "I" in team.

    You really should look into variable refresh "freesync" monitor since you use AMD.

    Do you know any "freesync" monitor under 250/260€?
