    link one at that price with a 120hz screen then..............................................

    You'd usually be getting a 1060 at this price.

    Not a chance at this moment in time. The cheapest at the moment with a 1070/120hz combo is £1500 +
    You can get the HP omen with a 120hz panel for £1099 but that has the 1060 card.

    Why would you even want that necessarily? Can you genuinely tell the difference from 60Hz? And do you think this hardware is realistically going to produce framerates >60fps at 1080p in most modern games? I'd be surprised.

    have been spoiled by 144hz, now when looking back at 60hz it looks blurry when moving across from side to side

    This hardware is more than capable of running modern games 60fps at 1080p, it would struggle horribly with 4k though. 60Hz/120Hz is not a big thing for me but you can tell the difference in some games when dropping from 120Hz

    Indeed, hence the > sign in my comment.

    I'm no expert, but this machine looks plenty capable of much higher framerates than 60fps at 1080p I'd have thought.

    Although his comment is asking for something that is far and above the price quoted in this deal, the difference between 60hz and 144 hz (or 120) in this argument, is staggering.

    I will always always chose framerate > resolution. It makes that much of a difference.

    Have you played 60fps then dropped down to 30fps? It's like watching a stop motion video.

    It is wrong to compare the difference between 30-60 HZ and 60-120Hz. It's what your brain can "see". Above 60Hz the brain cannot perceive the same type of difference as in the other case. Frame rate over resolution? Come on:), the choice is usually hardware related. Also don't confuse the refresh rate with the frame rate. You can have 120 refresh rate but the frame rate lower due to HW...hence 120 useless...

    You're just nit picking here... Have you experienced the a monitor above 60hz? The difference is absolutely perceivable by your brain. Going from my Home computer, to using my partners or work computer is massive, it feels like the mouse is moving in slow motion.

    For pc gaming yes, many prefer frame rate over resolution. When you're playing fps games that rely on 'twitch' movement and reaction speed, a monitor allowing you above 60hz in game to take advantage of the frame rates of your hardware can feel like an advantage in game at times. I've encountered plenty of people who have turned down their resolution to hit a certain 'hz' on their monitor to coincide with what frames their rig is putting out. It's the reason people 'overclock' their monitors too, to get those extra hz.

    I use a 144hz monitor for gaming right next to another 60hz monitor, the difference is very very noticeable! the 144hz feels smooth and makes the 60hz monitor feel almost laggy
    Would an external 4k monitor work at 4k resolution on this at 60fps? TIA!
