Is it upgrading from 1080p to 1440p worth it?
>>
save up for the 4k meme
>>
just get a 4k 60hz monitor, it's the best for gaming
>>

>>52569377
Dubs confirm. [email protected] minimum or go bust.
>>
>>52568818
no. in 1-2 years maybe.
>>
>>52569553
kek
>>
>>52568818
Yes, easily. Going from 1440p to 4K is even better and 1080p to 4K should be fucking amazing. For the first time in my life things on my PC monitor are sharp as fuck and pixels are too tiny to see or notice at all.

Which one /g/? 1440p IPS or 144hz Gsync TN
>>
>>52570304
IPS. I use a pair of Asus PB278Qs as my daily drivers, I'd take them over my friend's 120hz 1440p any day. The colors and depth you achieve with IPS just can't be achieved with TN.
>>
>>52570304
TN if you value response time over image quality, otherwise get IPS
>>
>>52570538

Dell UltraSharp ftw.
>>
>>52570304
You can have ips and 144hz now
>>
>>52570008
1440p to 4K is said to be a waste of money
>>
>just upgraded to 1080
>>
I'd like to use 1440p but there are no 22"-24" monitors with that resolution over here.

fug

>>52571617
get better glasses nerd

Asus are low quality no QC pieces of shit. I've RMA'd countless monitors for customers over the past 3 years.

both, the acer xb270hu is the best monitor in the world before going into 4k curved screen $1000 madness
>>
>>52572696
MUH GAYMEN
>>
>>52571617
x to 4k on 13-20s" screens is a waste of money

Same as 1440p on low 20"

People who buy tiny screen and then complain about scaling are the biggest idiots alive.
>>
>>52572728
I don't agree about low 20 not being 1440p worthy
>>
>>52572743
1440 is for 24" and larger
>>
>>52572750
agreed
>>
>>52572750
That's low 20
>>
>>52572801
No, 24" is mid

23" and lower is low 20's
>>
>>52572820
Nope
>>
Which 27" 1440p g-sync monitor is the best? I've read some awful complaints about build quality issues with the asus pg279q so I guess the acer XB271HU is the play?
>>
>>52572842
20, 21, 22, 23 low
24, 25, 26 mid
27, 28, 29 high
>>
>>52572860
or the XB270HU yeah
>>
>>52572728
Retina on iPad though is nice as fuark
>>
>>52572941
this

Im still using a 1360x768 monitor because im cheap as fuck, might upgrade to 1440 sometime this year though, probably just 1080 because I prefer size of screen over resolution because I watch movies on my computer
>>
>>52572942
I'm kind of torn actually. The XB271HU has thinner bezels but it has this awful GAYMUR design aesthetic, the stand is particularly atrocious. The XB270HU is thicker but at least it's a little understated.
>>
>>52572941
Low mid and high are just some shitty meme words you made up anyway so I don't give a fuck
>>
>>52572728

>Not using 144hz

You might as well just play on an Wii U
>>
>>52572967
I have the XB270HU and I reeeeally love it

The XB271HU is way too edgy looking IMO, they are the exact same specs except I think the XB271HU can be overclocked to have 160hz
>>
>>52573016
You would need better vision than that for a 23"
>>
>>52573019
pls, some of us know you are handicapping yourself by using 60hz, we aren't all animals
>>
>>52573019
>MUH GAYMEN
>MUH COMPUTERS ARE ONLY FOR GAYMEN
>>
>>52573020
Yeah it's newer and goes a little faster. I'm not sure I can handle having a decepticon sit on my desk all day though. I can save $50 getting the XB270HU.

Get much lightbleed on yours?
>>
>>52572973
23.8 counts as mid, don't be mad.
>>
>>52573046
Vidyafag here.

60hz is fine.
144hz is real nice and all, but I'm not spending the extra cash then the extra electricity to run it.
less frames = less power.
Shit I'd be happy with ~48hz, anything less than that feels weird for input.
>>
Did having very high resolution but keeping the same inch size mean that everything will appear small ?
>>
>>52573114
It can, it doesn't have to though.
>>
>>52573071
Next to zero, little bit near the middle top but barely noticeable even when you look for it in the corners
>>
>>52573114
Yes, it means higher PPI, so something 800x600 will look smaller on a 25" 1440p monitor as opposed to a 1080p one.
>>
>>52573088
well if you did game on pc and settled for 60hz you may as well just buy a console
>>
>>52573152
It's sad that you're too stupid to realize how dumb of a statement that is
>>
>>52573152
A console that does 60fps is outclassed by a PC upgraded for the same price.
>>
>>52573181
and it's sad that you think frame rate doesn't matter
>>
>>52573152
>implying any console can run a modern game at 60fps
>>
>>52573203
Your stupidity actually amazes me. What's even more stupid is that you think max frame rate is the only metric in gaming.
>>
120hz is where it's at desu lads
>>
>>52568818
I did it almost 4 years ago and it has been great.
>>
If you're getting a monitor with a high refreshrate, specifically for FPS games i suggest looking into stuff like contrast etc. It sucks to get a nifty 100+ fps and be unable to see who's hiding in the dark corner.
>>
>>52568818
1600p is worth it you 16:9 pleb

Don't forget to upgrade your GPU every year to the most expensive one otherwise you'd play gayms on low settings and not even 60 fps.
>>
>>52568818
I upgrade from 1080p to a 1440p monitor, fuck yes it's worth it, if you have the graphical horsepower to power it
>>
>>52572860
I've bought the Asus MG279Q and I love it. No quality issues at all.

Just moving around my mouse on the desktop with 144 Hz is lots of fun. I can never go back to 60 Hz.
