    Is a 144 hz monitor something worth upgrading to from a 60 hz on, and if so anything anyone is able to recommend/ start my research on?

    So my super high end choices your saying the 4790 is still better? Going with the more expensive higher end mother board and CPU actually hurts me?

    Specifically for gaming, and more specifically for Darkfall, yep.

    If you have a bit older yes go for it i would recommend a ips screen with 144 hz they are a bit pricy but its worth it, a screen is something you have for a long time.
    Tn panel screens have shit coolers

    Motherboards dont give you any fps, you only pay for features

    If you want 144hz, the prices start at $150 for low(er) quality, $180-240 for a good one, and $600 for an IPS 120-144hz

    IPS screens are beautiful, but that's a lot of money for more vibrant colors.

    Thats the thing I noticed aswell, the IPS looks stunning at every angle it seems in comparison to tn ones. Not exactly sure what gsync and freesync are.

    At the end of the day I'm not sure if its worth shelling out 600 dorra for that. I will have to read a bit more it seems.

    My opinion's not worth shit, but I don't think $600 is worth it at all. You only notice that the colors of your monitor aren't as good as they could be once you've got a direct comparison. They'd still good, though.

    Gsync and Freesync are hardware frame syncing. They're like Vsync, but instead of adding 8-16ms of input delay, they only add 2-4ms. Either way, they're unimportant in a game like Darkfall, where you'll have consistently high FPS, especially with monitors that have a low response time, which most 144hz monitors do, screen tearing is VERY rare.

    Yeah, IPS does look nice, and while the different angles provide a much larger contrast, you're usually not looking at your monitor from a weird angle anyways. Plus, it's in comparison to a cheap china tn panel.

    You could have a very decent looking (From the front, lol) 144hz monitor for $220-240. When you're comparing a high quality tn panel, with a frontal view, the IPS will look nicer, but the tn will still look good as fuck. To me, the jump from "good as fuck" to "fucking gorgeous" isn't worth $350-400

    But if you've got the money to spend, go for it, they're beautiful monitors.

    Agree with Inositol. However, I went for another option which also gives you the best of both worlds and also two monitors.

    My main is a 144HZ TN Panel(BenQ XL2411T) and my secondary is a VA panel(Benq EW2440). Even if you get both, even though the first one is quite an old model and im sure there are newer ones out there, you shouldnt have to spend more than 450 euro's(the VA one is 170 euro's atm here).

    About VA panels:

    http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/1890-panel-comparison-tn-ips-pls-va-crt
    I guess the reason VA panels are so cheap is because they tried to play the market split between the IPS panels and the TN panels, but they failed at it. They are still not great for gaming due to ghosting. Than again, I would definitely recommend them for watching movies etc.

    Like Inositol said, if you have the cash to spent on one monitor, something like the Asus MG279Q is pretty sweet(IPS, 144 HZ, 4MS, 1440p, 27 inch).

    Edit: The VA panel I linked is actually 170 euro's here :O.

    I played on a GTX 610 w/1gig and never had issues, i ran 8 gigs ram an a quad core, 2.6meg processor. really depends on your video card, and ram, but the Darkfall I remember and still play on the emulator, runs on my daughters crap computer just fine.

    if you have a decent processor, reasonable amount of ram (8gigs or more) and a good to great video card, you should be fine. if you invest a bit and switch to an ssd it'll run even better.

    No sir. The 25/2600k's are very nice overclockers, which is why they're still sought after, especially the i5 for gaming, but even with a 5.0 OC on a 2500k, you're not going to squeeze out the same per-core performance as the 4790k.

    I'm still running a 2500k in my desktop. I've got it at 4.5, and it'll run DFO like a champ, but we're talking about literally double the stock per-core performance here. You just can't squeeze that much extra power out of an overclock.
