Major Difference w/ or w/o G-Sync? 1440p @ 60hz compared to it at 144hz and 165hz?

Is G-Sync helpful? I know it prevents tearing, but is it necessary?

How is 60 hz, 144hz and 165hz diff on a 1440p monitor? Clearly they are different refresh rates, but compare them please? Also, what graphics card is necessary to run each diff refresh rate are high-max settings on AAA games?

1440p 165hz is going to require a lot of horse power, your best bet is a 1080ti with a fast CPU like an 8600K or an 8700K.

When you increase the resolution, the graphics card works much harder per frame because it needs to render more pixels. Most AAA titles dont really reach 144+ frames. You reach these when you tweak the graphic settings or are playing a less demanding title.

G-Sync isnt needed but it helps smoothen your perceived frame rate. To clarify, a monitor will have a set refresh rate like 144 for example. When your graphics cards doesnt reach that amount or is over but suddenly drops frame because the action is more intense, you normally end up with a stuttery feeling even if you are above 100hz. For 60hz monitor, most cards can reach these settings but going above is when you get more fluctuations and G-Sync (of Freesync depending on your GPU) will adjust your monitor's frame rate to match your output which removes that stuttery feeling.
