Does going from 1080P/60hz to 1440P/144hz on a 23" monitor really jump out at you or is it just, "Meh, I think that's better."  I know sometimes you don't really see the difference until the screen size grows.  I know watching 480P on my 65" tv sucks, but it looks good on the small screen.

    Higher resolution on the same screen size = higher ppi (pixels per inch) which equals a more sharper image. Going from 60Hz to 144Hz is definitely noticeable.

    Sometimes it just looks smaller - text and such .... as resolution increases
     
    Distance from your monitor makes it more noticeable than say a TV

    The best answer for this question would be simply if you turn on FSAA do you notice a difference in picture quality? If you say yes then you would notice a difference in having more pixels even on a small screen as the improvement is done with super sampling the image.

    1440p would be a waste on 23 inch. Refreshrate will be legit though.

    From the reading I've done, a lot agree with that. Seems 1080P monitors go to 75hz and then 144.  Edit... thought it was 85 and 144, but not.  Can't see an extra 15 frames being worth the upgrade, so the 144 is the only logical choice.
     
    I was reading one review of a small 1440 monitor and he said that it looked good, but if he could take it back, he would have just bought a faster 1080P for less cash out of pocket.

    Go 27" on 2560x1440p imho, seems to be the sweet spot. The 144MHz you'll notice the difference with gaming.

    My computer desk has a top with cabinets on either side. The biggest monitor I can fit in there is a 23 or 24" depending on how wide the frame is around the panel.

    The 144hz is great, best upgrade to my system was a faster monitor.

    If you are going with a smaller monitor, you would be better going with 240Hz in my opinion. Even if you can't maintain 240Hz, which you won't be able to all the time, the monitor will be more responsive and pretty much never have any tearing issues. I never see any tearing and do not need Gsync to ever be on. For anything under 27 inches, go with a 240Hz monitor. The only larger display that I would be looking at are the new HDR 4k 144Hz screens. Other than that, my PG258Q is the best monitor for me.

    I kind of feel it would depend on the price and if an upgrade might be in the future. It would of course be an improvement but it might be worth saving the money since larger gaming grade monitors are starting to hit the market.

    $520 for a 24.5" 1080P monitor.    I don't think I'm going to spend that amount of green.  I've been looking for a 1080P 75hz that will reliably OC to 90 in the hopes of saving some cash.  I've not had any luck.
