>1440p 60hz or 1080p 144 hz
Having trouble deciding for my first PC build. I want to know is resolution is more important than frames per second.
a mixture is the best thing you can do..
also if you are going for an amd card, definately check out freesync monitors and get something which achieves 75hz
75hz ist perfect for a fluid experience while not shelling out over 800$ for 144hz ips
you forgot to add
>"only requires 2x 980ti in sli"
it pointless to have so much frames when you have overall worser picture quality. not to mention adaptive sync tech is more relevant if you are gaming on a budget and can't meet atleast 90fps on your desirable.. mostly high to max settings on modern games
Depends on your build and what you're planning on doing with it, you numbskull.
I'm enjoying my 1440p 144Hz IPS freesync monitor very much. It's an XF270HU. Apparently lots of people are getting poor QC though (back-light bleed), but fortunately mine's perfect, so shop carefully.
Doesn't have some of the motion blur reduction features, so if you're a twitchy fps player you might be best with a TN.
I'm saving for a 144hz. 60hz will probably give your grandkids headaches in the future. I'm trying to workout of the 120hz business grade ones are any good. Half the price of gaming ones
Ah. I'd consider getting the G-Sync version if it wasn't £550. It's really not worth it when at 60fps the only games I have major stuttering issues with are The Witcher 3 and GTAV.
I might just get a 1080p ultrawide instead, then start saving up for one of those £800 ultrawide IPS G-Sync 1440p monitors to make use of the next-gen cards.
>major stuttering issues with are The Witcher 3 and GTAV.
Really? They're smooth with or without freesync for me, though freesync smoothens out frame dips that were noticeable without it. What GPU do you have? It might be a problem adaptive sync wouldn't fix.
970, and it isn't >3.5gb because I've checked and it rarely, if ever goes above 80% load and temps don't go above the 50-60 range.
TW3 is much better than it was, it's really only the main city where it's massively noticeable. It is still there though. GTAV is just fucked for me and I'm really not sure why, I've tried every fix out there.
You sure it's not the slow 0.5GB of memory? I've heard that's responsible for stutter. Could something be causing it to use the slow memory before the fast memory is full? Poor memory defrag in the engine comes to mind but I'm no expert.
Don't want to sound mean or like a shill but for the record it's completely smooth on the Fury.
No it's not that at all as it happens irregardless of settings. Putting absolutely everything at lowest in TW3 does make it a lot smoother but the juttering is still there and still obvious; same with GTAV.
I'm just trying to get it fixed in TW3 before Blood and Wine comes out. I don't want that experience tarnished by bullshit. With GTAV I completed it on PS3 in 2013 so it's not high priority.
You aren't a shill, but I'm definitely considering going AMD next generation if their top-tier GPU is up to standard. Although it really does suck that I'd be stuck with them if I ever get a freesync monitor.
>I'd be stuck with them if I ever get a freesync monitor.
Probably, but not necessarily. Intel and Vesa are adopting freesync. I think the more expensive Gsync's days are numbered. In the far future, nvidia cards will probably adopt freesync or its derivative.
But that's a long way down the road, so I was put off buying a freesync monitor too for a while.
