Higher Refresh Rate Monitors

Hi guys, I'm looking in to purchasing new hardware. I'm due for an upgrade after hammering my laptop for 5 years. Currently I only play mohaa on the laptop and football manager time to time but would like to start playing other modern titles but I don't think my laptop will handle. I was wondering if it's worth purchasing a higher refresh rate monitor and stick to a 1080p res or go higher and stick to 60hz. Does it make gameplay experience better? I've read across the Internet that higher refresh rate is better and with mohaa being an older title and possibly reaching above 100fps will it be more smoother? Would like to know your opinions. Thanks.

144 hz monitor is a must if you wish to move on to newer titles, recently started playing pubg and the fps i get now is around 120fps using an i7 and gtx 970. tried with my old 60hz monotor and the difference is very noticable. 144, 240 all day long in my honest opionion. fps is whats its all about in fast action first person shooters.

i am still using 60 hz monitor so i dont know if its better. what u must know is that the higher the refresh the more powerfull graphic card u need (in new games of corse).

Yeah I think I'm going to have to save up for a new build as graphics card, monitors are well expensive due to the crypto market and anything labelled gaming. The issue i have is that I'm just a casual gamer, so I'm not sure whether to invest a lot. I have a Ps4 to play rpgs on but prefer playing shooters with a keyboard and mouse. My laptop has a gtx630m built in and the refresh rate is 40 to 50hz on 15 inch. I recently bought a mechanical keyboard and gaming mouse which is a much better feel and can set dpi etc.

Games like Cs go, cod, rainbow six seige, pubg, fortnite, overwatch, bf. I know some of them you can get for console but I'd prefer to play with keyboard and mouse. I also run a dreamcast emulator some great games on that console. Im sure you can get a adapter for console but it's classed as cheating.

PUBG recomends gtx 1060 to play so u should look for 1070 or if you have cash 1070ti so you wont need to upgade in near future. i dont know how much cash u have but building pc in last 2-3 years that will last for about 7-10 years will need some resorses Smile
