So a friend of mine is building a new system and looking to buy a new monitor for about ~$250. And these seem to be the best in price- BenQ Mobiuz EX2510 (middle ground) MSI Optix G241 (cheapest) ASUS TUF Gaming VG259Q (most expensive of the three) These all seem decent but I was confused about something else entirely- the display cables supporting 1080p 144Hz. These monitors have HDMI 1.4 (ASUS), 1.4b (MSI), 2.0 (BenQ) and DisplayPort 1.2 (ASUS and BenQ), 1.2a (MSI) HDMI.org says HDMI 1.4b only supports up to 1080p 120Hz while forums/users say 144Hz is supported with various custom tweaks either by the manufacturer or setting custom resolution or software etc. I'm not sure about DisplayPort but I think 1.2 supports 1080p 144Hz. Since my friend is waiting for Zen 3 CPUs and NVIDIA RTX 3070 and it will be a while before that he is going to use his current laptop which only has HDMI output to try out 144Hz. Of course he will eventually use DisplayPort but I wanted to make sure just in case about the support.
