2ms 75hz vs 1ms 60hz monitor

So I want to buy a monitor that has 144hz refresh rate for 150 euros but i couldn't find any used for that price on ebay so i have to get a budget one.
The options i found are :
BenQ GL2450HM 2ms and 50-76 hz (i guess that means overclockable but I'm not so sure)

Acer GF246 1ms response time, 60hz and it comes with AMD Freesync which will be useful because I'm getting an rx 570
I play Cs go but It's not my main game so i wont be needing that high refresh rate daily.
Which one should i go for or do you have any suggestions for other monitors under 160 ?

  1. 5ms usually means IPS panel and 1ms always means TN panel. IPS panel is superior in colour quality.

  3. I'd go Freesync if you notice tearing and it bothers you. Not sure 75hz is a noticable improvement over 60.

  4. Then they are probably the same, GtG response time is mostly meaningless. Try searching for QX2414 on ebay or amazon, that's a cheap 144hz monitor.

  6. Then perhaps it's better for you to up that budget by 50 euros, seems doable to me. It would be much better than the other 2 monitors though make sure the seller is reputable.

    Although it's different for each person, to me overclocking my refresh rate from 60hz to 74 Hz was slightly smoother and still helped in the fast paced games I play (Team fortress 2 jumping).

  9. Well, there you go then :). Good info. I can definitely tell in the 90+ range.
