    Since I've been using nothing but subpar laptops and consoles my whole life, I decided this summer to build my first gaming PC. I've put a Ryzen 1600 cpu, 16 GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 Mhz RAM,MSI - B350 TOMAHAWK ATX AM4 Motherboard and the GPU best for my budget, a GTX 1060 6GB. From the benchmarks I've looked at online, in games I plan to play like The Witcher 3, Battlfield 4 and 1, or fallout 4, I will grab anywhere from 60-70 fps in these games. Up until now I hadn't put any thought into my monitor, but after being told by a friend that 144 hz was worth the leap and a big difference I looked into it. My core question is- If I am getting 60-70 fps in games on a 144hz monitor, is there any potential cons or downsides like screen tearing or something alike to that effect? Would it make more sense to get a 60hz monitor instead with this GPU? Budget is around 400 CAD$

    For best results, you would want a G-Sync model. And aside from budget or fps, you didn't mention resolution. You may find a suitable 1080P model. The 2k models are over your budget.
