    hello guys I just purchased this laptop couple days ago with 7820hq and gtx1070 and 4K screen.
    The laptop looks perfect and in very good condition.
    My brother repaste my CPU and GPU .
    Now I want to change my screen with the 120hz for gaming purposes...
    Which model 120hz and manufacture I must choose?
    I don’t have any idea mates.
    Please help.
    And last thing how much worth the 4K if I sell it?
    Thank you very much

    Hey I just bought a GT73VR 7RF that came with a 120hz screen. If you are interested , I can sell you mine since you want a 120hz screen. :)

    I buy replacement screens at LaptopScreen.com and I've always had great luck with them. Check this link: https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/MSI/GT73VR 7RE TITAN/

    I have the same laptop and have been considering the 4k screen. However I think I will sit on my 120hz HD for a while yet ... as I can change it out any time. You need to be sure you get the right pinout for your machine (30 or 40 pin header), or find an adapter. You could probably sell your screen for close to $100. XoticPC had the 4K screen upgrade option for $200, and Laptopscreen.com sells them for around $100 new.

    I'm actually not quite sure how to answer that. I've looked around a lot online and it seems that all 4k screen default to the 40 pin, but the only way to be sure is to open it up I guess. Unless someone else on here has done so.

    Also, Laptopscreen.com has information on choosing the right screen, along with a good amount of info on 30 and 40 pin connectors AND adapters. Plus they encourage you to email them or call them with questions. They know quite a bit about the subject, as it's all they do.

    That's a good question. I would think so cause they already support 3 kinds (120hz HD, 2880x1620 [3K], and 4K 60hz.) The graphics cards will support 144hz if they are able to on a desktop. There are laptops with gtx 1060s running 144hz displays out there (Sager is one) so I would be surprised if it wouldn't work.
