Can’t Be Beat for Gaming

I positively love gaming, but don’t really keep up on the latest hardware trends. A friend came over and suggested I look into acquiring a 144hz monitor. He said I would notice a vast improvement in the graphics if I upgraded to one of these devices. I was a bit embarrassed to admit I never heard of them before. I knew I had a 60hz monitor and really thought that was about all you could get. So I went online to look up more information on these monitors and to learn why they improve game play. I wasn’t sure I needed one.

Looking online for information revealed a plethora of useful information. As far as I can tell the 144hz monitor involves the refresh rate. What’s a refresh rate? Apparently a faster refresh means a better graphic display. It’s all sort of technical and complicated and I still wasn’t sure it would benefit me until I saw a comparison of what I use and the faster refresh rate monitor. Talk about a marked improvement! It’s quickly apparent that the 144hz monitor is vastly superior to what I’m using. You can’t even really compare them, frankly. It’s that much better.

I was impressed enough to buy one and eagerly awaited its arrival. Hooking it up was a snap and I quickly loaded one of my favorite games. All I can is wow! I don’t want to sound ridiculous by saying the difference is like night and day, but the difference, to me, is like night and day. Back ground graphics I really couldn’t make out before are crystal sharp and easily recognizable. I’d go so far as to say it makes the game easier to play because you notice things faster and can respond to them and thus get a higher score. I can never go back to the previous monitor.
