144hz with gtx 750?

Dec 29, 2019 10:16AM PST

In short I'm an osu player and was looking to upgrade to 144hz monitor with 1ms response time. I usually have 480 FPS in osu with this graphics card (gtx 750) however i just wanna make sure I don't waste my money for no improvement. I don't know much about monitors but i heard that not all connections support 144hz so I was wondering if it would work.

And if this gpu is not compatible what upgrade would you recommend (12gb of ram, fx 6300, gtx 750, some random black list 500w PSU)

HDMI may be only 30 or 60. Since there are so many old 750s out there I can't guess if yours has DISPLAYPORT which would be the choice for other than the usual standard 50 and 60Hz display connections.

Here is my gpu

My gpu

My gpu doesn't have a display port, only a dvi, vga and hdmi.

So if thats the case should i just go for upgrading my gpu first and then buying a 144hz screen?

For me to give a nod here.

What 144Hz monitor were you considering? If it had VGA, DisplayPort then it may be OK. I'm not finding a lot of 144Hz here with DVI so I think those are passing the way of the floppy disc.

it cant be vga/dvi

from what i know vga and dvi don't support 144hz, the only connections that can support it are Display ports and hdmi newer than 1.3 and 1.4 i don't remember. But after finding that out i was confused as i don't know if 1.3 refers to the port on the gpu or the actual cable itself. this made me unsure of buying the monitor as there would be no point if i couldn't use it's full potential.

Sorry but why should I debate you on this.

You DID NOT reveal which MONITOR you wanted to use so I can't pull all this together.

Since you only have the 750 we KNOW that you have to stick to 1080p so tell me which monitor and I'll look into this a little more.

Meanwhile consider these monitors: Watch
