    GAMING MONITOR question - Im NOT noob

    Hello.
    I have huge PC modding experience, and I am PC gamer since 1998.
    But I can not decide, what monitor to change.
    I sold mine old monitor IIYAMA ProLite E2473HDS 24".

    So, what's next ?
    I won't suggest anything, but i need 120 or 144 hz monitor.
    My choices so far:
    - benQ XL 2411Z
    - benQ XL 2430T
    - EIZO FORIS 2421.

    Last one is wired - 240 hz, but much more input lag, ghosting and some ohter different negative ****.

    Money is not problem here.

    I am playing copmetitive BF3 and BF4 only.
    More games I play? Dont ask ... Dont starve, Insurgency, Payday 2. Thats all.

    Movies watching from PC, but @ TV. I don't make graphic or changing photos colours. Im not graphic.
    Monitor for only gaming purposes.

    Other setup:
    - Intel Core i7 2700K 3,50 GHz BOX @ 4,70 GHz
    - Asus P8Z77-V PRO
    - GeForce GTX 780 EVGA 3GB 2xDVI&HDMI&DP (PCI-E) Superclocked ACX Cooler

    Is that any HUUUUGE difference between 120 and 144 hz monitor, if im not using 3D glasses ?

    Please help me .

    There won't be a big difference between the two, but 144Hz would definitely be better.
    Especially for FPS games, like BF3 and BF4.
    I've been using the ASUS VG248QE for about a year now and just love it.

    IT has to have Gsync or Freesync.
    Just having 144hz will not madder.

    This is because the monitor will be fixed at a certain refreash; if the FPS drops from your GPU some reason it will need to fill those frames with copies of the previous frames; This can lead to it looking like stutter. Gsync lets the GPU set the refresh on the monitor dynamically to remove that stutter;
    I play a lot of MWO; and when I have V-sync off my FPS can be as high as 130 and as low as 34; My monitor is fixed at 60 and it look horrible.

    The only problem is that you cant get one right now; I have been trying to get the ROG Swift since Oct; Acer has a identical once coming out in Feb; so supply should loosen up by then..
    Unless you can live with just HD 1920x1080; Then there are monitors available today; But to get the Qhd, 144hz and gsync, ROG is the only option right now.

    im playin at locked 120 fps, but i dont see that effect on this old monitor.

    My choices so far:
    - benQ XL 2411Z - dont know what is the difference between this one and 2430T,
    - benQ XL 2430T - my top choice so far,
    - benQ XL2420G - my second choice so far, but with G-sync or without?
    - EIZO FORIS 2421 - after googling, i come to conclusion that 240 hz is ghosting and many negative effect to gameplay
    - ROG SWIFT PG278Q - OP sh!t, but ... 1920 x 1080 @ 27 inches will suck, so i wont waste my money on SLI solution to play in native resolution.

    and I didnt say one more thing - i have limited desk space, like sitting 60 centimeters away from monitor, so 27" will be too big i guess ...

    I own benq monitors and really like the performance they offer your choice of the 2430T is the one to get imo. The swift would be my first choice for a 1440p monitor but there still very hard to find.
    Current: MSI Xpower Gaming Titanium | 7700K | G Skill Ripjaws V 3000 16Gb | 960 EVO 500Gb | Intel 730 480Gb | Seasonic 1000 Platinum |
    NZXT X62 | Acer XB270HU | EVGA 1080 ti FTW3

    Secondary: R4BE | 4930K | G.SKILL 2400 16GB | Corsair AX 1500i
    Intel 730 240GB + 480GB | EVGA GTX780 ti sli kpe | Custom H20
