Every 144Hz Monitor That You Can Buy In Australia

If you have a powerful gaming PC, you know that 60 frames per second is not enough. Newer LCD monitors can display up to 144 frames per second, but it's surprisingly hard to find exactly which monitors support this standard, as well as more advanced tech like FreeSync and G-Sync variable refresh rates. So, we've rounded them all up into one big list.

We scoured the 'net and built this list, but if you know of a particular model that you can buy in Australia — we didn't include drop-ship importers that operate through eBay — tell us in the comments below! We've also included links to Aussie product pages and rough pricing, pulled from StaticIce, as well as a quick guide to screen size, resolution, panel type and extras like FreeSync or G-Sync. Without further ado:

    Just to let you know, The Benq XL2730z actually has a 2560x1440 resolution and is also Freesync compatible.

    BenQ XL2730Z

    27"
    2560x1440
    144hz
    TN Panel
    Freesync

    So, they either do Freesync or G-Sync, not both?

      YEP.

      Gsync for nvidia cards, Freesync for ati and no sign of that changing any time soon or probably ever until it becomes irrelevant anyway.

        Lol ATi. I wish they never merged the GPU part when AMD bought them and kept them as ATi.

    I'm more in the market for a 4K G-sync IPS monitor. Any suggestions?

    I've got a asus pg279q, Great screen but make sure you have some serious grunt to run it. I have a 980ti asus strix and it struggles to keep the screen at 144 with lowish settings in bf4. The usual settings like mesh quality etc on high though. Also a note to others i run battle screen on a second monitor and therefore cannot run gsync on the main monitor. I guess the card doesn't like running gsync on one display and not the other. It might be a different story with to gsync enabled displays but at a wallet busting $1200 a pop i don't have that luxury so game with ULMB instead for bf4 even though gsync provides a slightly nicer experience. All other games work great with gsync though.

    And for those wondering is it worth getting a higher than 60hz monitor, yes. Yes it is. Gsync and IPS are also great despite the extra cost.

    PCCG will have the Acer XB271HU from tomorrow. That monitor has been getting some decent mentions.

    G-Sync IPS 144hz too.

      Nice! That's be the Acer equivalent of my MG279Q -- love the IPS plus 144 and FreeSync.

    Hi Cam
    You've missed two of Acer's best sellers:

    Acer XB270HU BEST SELLER
    Screen size: 27-inch
    Resolution: 2560x1440
    Panel type: IPS panel
    Extras: G-Sync – 144Hz
    Price: Approx. $949

    Acer XB271HU NEW
    Screen size: 27-inch
    Resolution: 2560x1440
    Panel type: IPS panel
    Extras: G-Sync 144Hz native with overclock 165Hz and borderless bezel
    Price: Approx. $1049

    When I follow the link for the Acer XB240H, its price is $599, not $499.

    Perhaps not worth mentioning, but the ASUS VG248QE is the monitor that doesn't come with G-sync as standard, but you can get a DIY g-sync kit from nvidia for it. Looks tricky though!

    I have the AOC G2460P and I couldn't believe the difference over my old 60hz 27 inch asus, was night and day difference, was like i upgraded my gfx card or sommin! Just be aware, 144hz was only available through DVI connection, not display port or hdmi, dunno... just thought i might mention that, might be relevant to some.

    I have a bit of a noob question, hoping someone can answer.

    Ok, so i get the 60hz to 144hz thing for gaming monitors, vastly improves things, but how does it differ to TVs?

    You see I have a Sony Bravia 55inch LCD tv, bought a good 4yrs ago or so. It had that fastmotion tech thing that so many tvs seem to support nowadays. I didn't like the affect, it make films look 'behind the scene', but there's no doubt it smooths the picture out when doing sports or documentries when slow panning across nature landscapes etc.

    Is this feature any different than toggling between sorta 60hz and 144hz? The reason I ask is I play a bit of Rocket League on the PC with a control pad, keen to try on a large tv someday, but I know it's a bit of a pointless endeavor if it can't beat the smoothness of a 144hz monitor. So... is there a Gizmodo article in the making for picking the best tvs for gamers :D ?
