Most PC gamers are happy with hitting 60 frames per second (or FPS) in games. In recent years, however, the arrival of high-refresh-rate monitors has ushered in a new era of super-slick PC gaming where gaming at refresh rates of 120Hz, 144Hz or, in the case of Asus ROG Swift PG258Q, a whopping 240Hz, is easily achievable.

If you’re running a PC that has a graphics card capable of pushing such a high number of frames to the monitor, gameplay is rendered in buttery-smooth high-fidelity. Not only does it look amazing, it can help you take down enemies a split second before they have the chance to react to you in their sights.

As such, having a monitor that’s as fast as you is vital for playing e-sports or first-person shooter (FPS) games – such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive or similar – where twitchy-heavy movement and accuracy is key to victory.
