Wouldn't GPU model tell you that?

Switched to 180 Hz display recently. Interestingly, there are more users with 240 Hz displays here than with 180 Hz ones. I guess it's an uncommon value (it's really 165 Hz one but with built in overclock to 180).

Not really, some models have variants. Plus it's a good metric to see explicitly.

yeah, i have 170hz monitor, so i just chose the 165hz option as this is close enough. Lots of weirdly overclocked monitors for whatever reason.. like does it really matter if its 144 or 180 ..i guess higher the number the better it looks for some lol

The jump from 60 Hz to 144 Hz is surely more significant than from 144 Hz to 180 Hz. But it's still smoother (less motion blur, etc.).

Outside of gaming, the easiest way to see the difference is to scroll a lot of text fast.

I guess at least the specifications look better with higher numbers

E-sports players might even get slight advantage from higher refresh rate, but even with that there's must be limit somewhere. Regular gamers won't see any benefit in reaction times, so investing into more expensive display for that reason alone is not worth it.

Thing with overclocked displays though is that they might have ghosting. There are tests that can show that quite clearly with high speed camera. Cheaper alternative is to find review where that has been tested. I guess that's more useful when you're thinking about buying new monitor. If you bough the monitor already, you will stay happier if you don't check the reviews.

I wonder if anybody has done tests if people can tell the refresh rates apart. Could be interesting.

You would thing. I've had 30hz, 60hz, 144hz, 170hz, and 270hz -- 144hz is definitely not the drop-off point, there are noticeable gains at 170 and even 270hz.

240-270 is good enough IMO if you are doing FPS, 144 is meh.

Good enough in FPS is also relative, if your GPU can't saturate that. Something like CP2077 at 2560x1440 only produces around 70 fps for me. Can't even imagine what kind of GPU will be needed to get 270 fps in it, but I guess in a few generations of them it would be doable.
