I realize there are a lot of posts about this topic but I haven't found exactly what I need. I'm looking for a monitor under $200 (preferably around $150). It seems like most 60Hz 24" monitors are around $100. Is it worth it to pay $50 more to get 75Hz or $100 more to possibly get 144Hz?

This is my current build. Obviously not playing at 4K and 144Hz but I do plan on upgrading the GPU eventually. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/benckend/saved/bQyNQ7

These are the monitors I'm looking at: 60Hz - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vW38TW/acer-monitor-r240hybidx 75Hz - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Dnbkcf/lg-24mp59g-p-238-1920x1080-75hz-monitor-24mp59g-p 144Hz - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/PmyFf7/acer-monitor-umfg6aab01

Thanks for the input!

Depending on the titles/settings you play, the RX 580 should be able to push over 60fps in a lot of titles at 1080p making a 75-144hz monitor a decent acquisition.

If you could stretch the budget a bit, I would recommend the Nixeus - NX-VUE24A which is a great 1ms 144hz TN monitor with freesync capacity. It will allow you to go as high as your build allows and Freesync will ensure it remains stutter free even if it doesnt reach 144hz.

Thanks so much for the input. I will definitely look into the 75-144Hz monitors more!
