1440p vs 1080p

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, 

 

I'm currently looking to buy a new monitor, and I've got two good options.

A 1080p monitor, 144hz and 1ms response time (MSI)

or the $100 more expensive 1440p, 144hz 1ms response time from AOC

I'm looking to upgrade my rig in the future to a RTX 2060 paired with an core I5 9400F or I5 9600K

Which monitor do you guys think I have to choose?

 

Thanks for reading!

Let me add that if you get the 1440p monitor you will need a video card to drive it to 144fps.  The 2060 will come short giving your 144fps.  You can try turning everything off in nv panel and also put game settings to medium to low settings.  A 2060 is not a 1440p card.  It is a 1080p card.  In this case buy the 1080p if you are gonna get a 2060 and you can use some AA methods to take care of jaggies.

Besides games, what physical sizes for the monitors?

 

Personally, I think 24" is max for 1080p.  27" for 1440p.

 

I think a 2060/9600K combo can push a 1440p 144Hz panel okay, but not 100% sure.

 

Edit:  By that I mean push 80+ FPS at 1440p.  Just because you get a 144Hz panel, it doesn't mean you have to have 144Hz+.  It means you have a lot more room above 60Hz to play with.

If you do anything more than just gaming then definitely get 1440p.

2060 should be good enough to handle most games at 100+ FPS on reasonable settings.

Well if he is gonna be playing things like csgo and minecraft(look at his profile picture) the rtx2060 can drive those games 1440p 144hz pretty good i think.

Hello,

 

haha that picture is from years ago, I actually don’t care about it. I’m sorry for the lack of clarity that caused it. To be clear, I’m going to play games like cs:go, Pubg, Ark, Fortnite and Rainbow six siege. For ark 60Fps in enough for me because 144hz doesn’t matter in that game. For the competitieve games I probably use low settings anyway. Thanks for the quick response!

In pubg i dont think you will get 144fps even in low settings but i might be wrong in fortnite you will definitely get 144fps,you can look up 1440p fortnite rtx 2060 to see for yourself.

Hey, 

 

The 1440p monitor is a 24inch one. Do you think that its worth that or is 24 inch better for the 1080p one?

At 24", go 1080p.  Especially if $100 cheaper.  At 24 inches, the pixels will be small enough that it will be hard to tell a huge difference for gaming.

 

For content creation, it may be worth it tho.

I’d stick to 1080p myself. Especially considering the card. 

 

I use a gtx 1080 on both 1080 and 1440p. More frames are always preferred for an FPS game. But really comes down to the game, some I prefer the larger res on for the fov advantage without ruining my mouse settings.
