do you guys use your desktop on 4k resolution

Recommended Posts

hi im a bit new to monitors but im getting a new monitor soon because my current one is going to someone else. anyways im stuck between getting a 4K monitor or a 1440p monitor. the price range im expecting is 300-400$. when i use my 1920x1080 20 by 10 inch monitor it makes everything look extremely small in 4k settings. its very good how i am able to fit more programs on 4K resolution but its  readable. anyways how is the readability for you on your 4k resolution monitor? do you use "change the size of text, apps, and other items" in your windows 10 settings? also do you know which monitor on amazon i should get in the 300-400$ range. im okay wth 399.99$. i have been seeing stuff about hz and response time, but i dont know how to target the best monitor because theres so much to it.

 

 

my specs right now are 

i9 9900k

rtx 2080

16gb ram

so it is able to handle 4k. i do able 60% gaming, 40% work on this computer

(edit): it is readable is just hard to read sorry for that mistake on 4k

Hell, I do 125% on my 1440p UW.  Old age :)

 

Doing 4K reso on a 1080p monitor won't look good I can't imagine due to pixel size.

i mean the problem about using scaling is that i see no difference from 1440p and 4k on desktop mode. anyways i think my choice is something like a 1440p 144hz monitor or 4k 60hz monitor. i cant find any 4k 144hz monitor on amazon below 400$.

Probably can't find any below $1000, it's cutting edge and you can't do that resolution in gaming anyway.

 

Go 1440p, unless you absolutely need super small pixels to read web pages on.
