Considering BenQ Zowie XL2411P
1. Will there be a noticeable difference if the computer he is using is only an i5-6400, 8GB RAM, SSD drive, currently connected to a 60Hz 1080p monitor? While he does hit 144 FPS and higher at times, I remember seeing it hover in the low 100's at times, and sometimes even lower depending on the detail level. Does he need a consistent 144 FPS or higher to take advantage of a 144Hz monitor, especially since this monitor doesn't support G-sync or free sync?
2. If he can benefit from this type of monitor with his current setup, is it actually a good choice, or is there something else we should consider at the same price point?
3. If he can't benefit from it, is upgrading the motherboard and CPU the only solution, and what CPU would get him to that level? I believe he said that he's not maxed out on memory, but I could be mistaken.
