Custom Resolution Question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm in the market for a new monitor. I only plan on gaming, but not competitively. I have been using a 1080p 60fps IPS 4ms monitor since 2011. I've gotten use to the IPS panel and I don't think I can switch to a TN panel. (I might consider a VA panel, but the viewing angles would have to be decent)

 

With ideal conditions, my current rig can run most games (every game I own) at 1440p 60fps.

 

My question is when using a 1440p monitor when you change the custom resolution to 1080p, how far can you typically increase the refresh rate?

Not worth buying a 1440p display at this point unless it's 144hz.

 

Just go for a 4k 60hz IPS free-sync display.

 

You can always run games at a lower resolution anyways.

 

You're unlikely to overclock very far by lowering the resolution.

I've got an RTX 2060, I'm not gonna be able to run games at 4k

You just run the games at 1080p or 1440p.

 

But I do all my gaming at 4k on an RX 580 just at like low-medium settings.

I hate TNs too. I have an IPS next to a VA panel, and at a glance I can't tell the difference in color accuracy. Looking closely, the IPS does look better. So I recommend the VA panel You should just get a 1080 144hz VA panel imo.

I'm doing some research at the moment. I had no idea i was using a IPS panel until last month.

 

Watching videos describing TN panels and IPS panels, I was led to believe that TN panels were the only logical choice for gaming, and IPS was only for workstations.

 

(That being said, TN panels are a decent choice for competitive gamers who need 1ms 165hz monitors that are under $500)

 

I got a cheap 1080p 60hz TN monitor to see the difference, and oh boy. I didn't think viewing angles would matter as much as they do. 

 

Unless you are at exact eye level with the monitor, you are going to see light and dark areas. I move around when I game; sometimes I'll be 1½ feet away at eye level, sometimes I'll be 3 feet away sitting on my foot, sometimes I go full slav and I'll squat in my chair. So TN panels aren't an option for me

 

I'll check out some VA panels, I'm trying to find something over 100hz and preferably at 1440p (I plan on gaming either at 1440p 60fps or at 1080p 100+fps) for less than $600
