Are High Refresh Rate Gaming Monitors Worth Buying?


By Ray Ampoloquio October 10, 2021

Buying a gaming monitor with a high refresh rate might appear to be a requirement these days, but it's not. 

Several other factors outside of the refresh rate affect your choice of monitor. 

First of all, high refresh rate monitors don't come at a small price. 

In addition to this, not all games support high refresh rates and your set-up might not even be able to keep up. 

PC gamers, in particular, will need to upgrade their unit to a more capable one to run games at higher refresh rates. 

At the end of the day, your gaming monitor of choice all depends on your needs, preferences, and budget. 

However, if you are a casual gamer, you'll be better off buying a gaming monitor with a higher resolution or better screen panel.
