I forgot about changing my board to Z97, thank you for reminding me. All the 144hz monitors I've looked at aren't IPS which is a big downside to me, and anything above 60fps is marginally better (to my eyes, at least.) I'll have to do more research on the Nepton 240m.

I watch movies about as much as I play video games so the colors and viewing angles are a big deal to me.
