Is 144hz monitor worth it for my spec?

  Dave Stapp 17:06 04 Jan 2018

Hi guys was hoping someone could give me some advice. I've just ordered a new pc (specs below). Which of these two monitors do you think would be best for me?

  1. Acer 24" XF240H

  2. LG 24BK550Y-B

The first is a 144hz tn screen and the second is a 60-75hz ips screen. Is it worth spending the extra bit for the 144hz? I've bought this pc for gaming and photo editing.
