You don't want to use any of these 240hz monitors at 144hz, not matter what. All 240hz monitors if set to lower refresh rates act so bad, and they get bad responsive times.

I haven't tested this Omen, but in most cases on 240hz monitor and around 150fps, you should notice less tearing (if using g-sync compatible) But this may vary from unit/copy to unit/copy.

Thanks!
I was afraid that would be the case, but my most played game is rainbow six siege(3000 hours now) and I get 200+ fps in that game with only in extreme situations drops to 180 fps.
So if I buy a monitor like the omen or XF252Q my other games like apex legends will look and feel worse since I only get around 140 fps on those.

Maybe I should use 2 monitors, one for 240 and one for 140 :lol:

SORRY I KNOW THIS IS LONG. COULD REALLY USE THE HELP. This is something im afraid of. Im looking at monitors for my build im going to be making https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZMhTHB
Now im a super competitive person in games. (Not a pro, just competitive by nature.)

now with a build like mine i should be getting solid fps in competitive games. Im not all to sure about pubg however. But getting like 300 fps in some of these esport titles seems like a waste to get a 144hz monitor. Id be looking at 24” 1080p tn monitors.

But i play everything mmos like eso, wow, story games like tomb raider etc, racing (forza horizon mainly) i mean i play everything. So I thought ill get a 240hz monitor and just use like g sync in those non comp games. Ill run low settings in the comp games to achieve high fps.

Im starting to read though about bad overdrive and input delay though on lower hz or what not. Idk im new to this and struggling to figure it out..

whats it like playing 100fps on a 240hz monitor for those other games (Like
story stuff)/in general ..? Any issues? Like ghosting/overdrive, stuttering,
tearing, input lag? Any other issues I didn’t list?

Whats the difference of a 240hz monitor set at 144hz vs a native 144hz
monitor? Whats the difference playing at 100fps on 144hz native vs 144hz set
on 240hz monitor? Any difference in color on the 240hz panel vs 144hz tn or
is it just down to manufacture tuning?

What are some options? Does it make sense to go 240hz in my situation? There
will be alot of times im playing competitive games and story. I had the
xg258q, aw2518hf and maaybe the xg248q but i heard theres clouding issues
and other issues plus innolux panel... thats for 240hz or for 144hz the
only one i can think of right now is the viewsonic xg240R

Feel free to link anything to help. Mention anyone who could help. Whatever
that i can do to better understand everything. Thank you.

@Notty_PT @ChiefBlurBuster what are your thoughts on this?

Is there a place i should put this for more help?
