While not of huge concern for single-player games or casual multiplayer, high refresh rates are very important when it comes to competitive games. And even if a game supports unlocked refresh rates, you also need a monitor capable of outputting them. Though overkill for many, some PC users may want to look into 240Hz gaming monitors. While they can be pricey, they are currently the most affordable options in the high refresh rate arena--360Hz monitors exist, but they are a bit too expensive in general.
