Let's talk monitors, /v/.
I hear that the most important thing for a monitor is not the resolution, but rather the 144 Hz refresh rate.
What are your thoughts? Would you rather have a 1080 monitor with 144? Or a 4k monitor at 60?
If you take any competitive FPS games seriously, refresh rate is important. If you don't, there's no point going over 60Hz. There's also no point going over 1920x1080 if your GPU doesn't have the guts for it, or if you're primarily playing ports of console games which are designed around 1600x900 or whatever. You also gotta consider the colours, if you watch a lot of movies or TV on your computer monitor. I use a 144Hz 1920x1080 monitor (Asus VG248QE) and it's awful for movies.
1440p 120hz. fuck 4k unless g-sync/freesync is any good with it.
currently using 1080p 120hz with strobed lighting, 144hz non-strobed is shit in comparison.

what would be a good monitor for playing games and watching movies on?
what specs should I look for?
Are you going to get serious about competitive games? Because if not, then you should be looking for an IPS panel. These have the best color and contrast, but their response time is higher, which will put you in disadvantage when playing against other people.
Ive had a 1080, 144hz, 23", 1ms, ips for a year or so now. It's perfect for any fps game but Im seriously considering a 39.5" 4k for fun. For playing my strategy games and browsing and porn. The one I'm looking at is $489 which is good for the specs right now. I just have more money than I need.
I dont play competitive games too ofter
however emulating games I notice a lag
timing is all off on things like smb1 whose mechanics are burned into my brain so any difference I notice instantly
so if I could fix that it'd would be great
>friend buys a 5k Mac PC for $2,000
What do you even do with a 5k Mac screen? Seems redundant.
theres three models that do that(acer,asus,dell), they're all the same panel afaik.
the dell one is pretty good, model numer starts with SG. just google dell gsync. I did not like its color shift (because TN) but thats up2u. gl
What the fuck are you talking about? If you're getting a 60 hz signal things will at best look at 60 hz. It may even look worse since you'll get repeated frames since 144 is not a multiple of 60.
The only exception are tvs that interpolate frames algorithmically which looks like shit.
