That monitor runs at 114mhz as well over freesync so is plenty fast enough.
its only 75hz vertical (120horizontal), the 114 is an average but is a tad misleading.

product code is the same.

I would more be looking for high refresh for a gaming monitor.

Unless your a pro gamer where ever single possible frame counts then it's not something to even worry about.

Also if your coming from a console and tv then the difference in input speed and general picture smoothness will be night and day too.
my bad, missed it in the details when scanning at work. Definitely a good option then. And as said, I'm not a pro gamer by any means and won't be quite as picky in regards to some of the specific frame refresh stuff. Thanks both

Anyone got any pics of their setup, desk, monitor(s) etc ?

Nice system here Ste. Just needs a big platter secondary hard drive for all your stuff, plus another 8gig stick of ram to take advantage of ryzens duel channel speed.
