1 : Anonymous2021/10/02 02:05 ID: pzm8s8

what should i use in competitive gaming and i constantl changing my hz from 120 to 144 everytime i play game. is it bad for my monitor?

i've got a 144hz display and 120hz freesync and vrr display. Freesync is definitely the way to go, a 22hz difference doesn't warrant losing freesync or vrr functionality.

for me personally, i value variable refresh that follows the actual FPS my GPU puts out much more than just the highest refresh possible that isn't synced.

I find that i have much easier time tracking enemies without screen tearing than with.

Disclaimer: i do however have 240 Hz screens.

At 240Hz screen tearing should be pretty unnoticeable from my experience.

Its not bad for your monitor no. Also why can you not use 144hz with freesync?

the screen will flicker

144Hz with Freesync is the best option, but if the monitor's flickering within its rated specs then it's faulty, usually by design nowadays.

A fair few manufacturers cut costs by building a lower-spec monitor, say 120Hz, then overclocking it to 144Hz which can lead to flickering as it can't handle it.

There's various workarounds floating around out there, but generally getting a monitor that actually does what it says on the box is the best option.

A DP 1.4 certified cable might fix that. I’ve had multiple freesync monitors that flickered when using the included cable from the monitor, fixed by replacing with a good quality cable. The cables they include in the box are typically bottom of the barrel garbage.

144, since you should be over 144 with an uncapped frame rate, and freesync wouldn't work anyway

Whichever you prefer. Personal preference is important.

144hz has less input delay for competitive games. If you're having screen tearing, you'll should stick with 144hz but wirh FreeSync on.

Screen tearing is far less noticeable at high framerates than in the 30-60Hz range, imo.

I never experienced that so I just play my game at 400 fps.

I prefer 120hz due to videos.24 video looks better when watch on 120

144 is divisible by 48.

120 is divisible by 30 and 60.

Both are divisible by 24.

you re right,but there re 30/60fps video:)

imo screen tearing is gonna be the more obvious issue vs 22hz less

get the 120hz

What exactly does freesync ?

14 : Anonymous2021/10/02 16:13 ID: hf41t3g

120 FS. Since I game @4k and am a spectacle gamer, not a competitive one, I demand the highest image quality possible. Screen tearing ruins the pretties.
