Sharing your personal experience with high refresh rates

They say everyone sees frame rates differently, so this is my personal experience:

1) 30fps on consoles: this is choppy. PC is amazing at 60fps!

2) Oh cool I can overclock my monitor to 75. Wow! What a difference compared to 60, now i'm obsessed with 120+FPS.

3) 120-165 is nice, but it's not the jump I expected from 60.

4) tries 60fps again to see what it's like Gross, I need 120FPS minimum!

I went from a 60hz 2560x1600 Dell 30" monster to an X34 Predator 100hz ultra-wide and going to a 100hz & IPS panel was an amazing upgrade.

Unless you are really tight for cash then I wouldn't recommend anyone stay on a 60hz monitor.

To be honest, I've always managed to crank settings to the point that I can't get 60Hz (right now I have a fairly old GPU and monitor, but will probably spring for a new GPU + 4k monitor soon enough. I doubt I'll go past a 2080 and still will have choices between "all options" and getting 60fps@4K). I'm probably also too old to see much benefit beyond 60Hz, but I understand that youngsters (i.e. anyone not well into their fourties) might be able to see such things.
