The majority of gaming displays run at 144Hz, which is considerably faster than the 60Hz of a typical monitor.

It also has a 1-millisecond response time, which helps eliminate ghosting or motion blur.

Pricey for a 1080p display in 2018

MSI says the monitor’s MSRP is $479, but as of today, the only retailer you can purchase the NXG251 from is BestBuy, priced at $499.

It’s far easier to discern a difference in smoothness between a standard 60Hz display and a 144Hz gaming monitor than it is between 240Hz and 144Hz.

MSI is currently restricted to using older TN panel technology with an LED backlight to make it work, a standard FHD 1080p resolution, and a screen size no larger than 27 inches.
