    I've been pretty satisfied with my current monitor till I got more competitive in a couple of online FPS games. Been hearing a lot 144hz can make a lot of difference over 60. Currently I'm on a 23 inch monitor so I don't want the next monitor to be smaller than that.

    Back when I purchased my current monitor I was still studying and I prioritized on color accuracy, and was mostly playing single players so I just went along with the tearing issues. Though I still do work on my pc, gaming is what I do most these days so the refresh rate is the priority now.
    Besides, my current monitor started having some bleeding, and sometimes it takes time to turn on and stuff so I guess its time I go for an upgrade.

    i have the same config.... been looking for a good 144hz monitor. one i shortlisted is Asus VG258Q but unfortunately its not available here.

    this is one of those monitor which has Freesync tested by Nvidia and if you have a 10xx & 20xx series GPU, you can take advantage of Freesync with your Nvidia GPU (i will be getting an rtx 2070 soon)

    I think above linked Acer one is not 144Hz display.

    Seems most of the 144hz in this price range does not have an IPS panel and color accuracy is an issue on these :\

    I play single player games only now. Recently I finished Far Cry New Dawn and Metro Exodus.

    I don't play multiplayer games anymore as they suck up too much time and I daresay I was addicted 4-5 years back.
