Monitor + Resolution for RTX 2060 Super

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just upgraded my PC to:

Ryzen 5 3600x

16GB Ram

Asus Rtx 2060 Super Strix OC

Current Monitor: LG 24 75hz 1080p monitor

 

I need help advice on picking a 144hz Monitor and Resolution for my new build. Go for 1440p or 1080p?

I mainly Play Overwatch, Apex, Monster Hunter World, Path of Exile while streaming (FPS and RPG).

I care about 144hz in FPS, I used to cap 60 fps in MHW (Mid-Low quality using a 1060 6GB while streaming)

 

Should i get 1440p or 1080p (24"/27")? My budget is 500 usd

These are some Monitor i am currently looking up in 3 categories

  27" 1440p                             27" 1080p                            24" 1080p

LG 27GL850                        LG 27GL650F                      MSI MAG241C

Asus VG27AQ                     Asus VG279Q                      

 

*If there is any other monitor that you suggest other than these, please mention

Concerns:

27" 1440p = I wont get enough power to drive 144hz and or have a good viewing experience as i would have to lower a lot of the graphic quality

27" 1080p = Its a 1080p that is stretched and I will notice pixels when focusing far targets in FPS, resulting in a bad experience as well

24" 1080p = Regret not getting 1440p, and the new 1ms IPS from LG 27GL850 would have been a better choice than a VA panel (motion blur, response time, lag)

I'd go with the 1440P display for a 2060S. You can always turn a few settings down - like you said - to improve performance, but on a 1080P display you can never achieve the same fidelity. Sure, you can DSR to 1440P, but it's not the same sharpness as 1440P natively on a 1440P display.

if you think you'll upgrade your 2060 super in the next year or so, go for 1440p and suffer for a while by reducing details/resolution.

if you plan on keeping the 2060super for a long time, go for 1080p.

I wont be upgrading in couple of years

Would turning down the settings on 1440p be better than high settings on 1080p

I don't have any experience using 1440p, or 144hz other than the monitor i already have, thats why i can't make up my mind

I have not had a chance to test any real high end games,

But I have a 2060S and a Ryzen 5 3600, and I can drive my LG 31.5" 144hz 1440p screen at max settings in CSGo and the Trepang 2 demo so far.

According to % and temps its barely working to do that, at well over 200fps.

Hope to test COD Modern Warfare on it soon.

With a 2060S ur likely going to want to stick with 1080p for now since u dont plan on upgrading anytime soon.

 

Bare in mind both MHW and POE have issues that get in the way of super high frame rates, MHW poor optimization and game engine limitations, and POEs server side calculations for damage slow things to a crawl when a lot of actions/damage happen on screen.

 

Now since u have $500 u may want ot consider a 240hz display.

A newly reviewed model is 27" 1080p IPS, has excellent reviews, it really does, u should consider it.

The most stand out results of this display are its excellent factory calibration, very good pixel response for an IPS, an almost perfect BFI implementation, and acceptable uniformity.

Would a 27" 1080p be a bad choice/experience compared to a 24" 1080p and 27" 1440p?

I use a 42" 1080p display :P

 

Its less to do with the physical display resolution and more to do with the rendering resolution. If u find games looking to aliased, increase the rendering resolution. You will find its not the PPI of the display making things look bad.

 

A 1440p display looks better than a 1080p display because u natively run games at a higher rendering resolution on the 1440p display. The difference is drasticaly reduced (though still there) if u were to compare the displays when rendering at the same resolution.

So if the 27" 1080p wouldn't be a bad experience, and also increase fps it would be the good choice for me?. Do you know any other ips 27" 1080p with near response and performance as the LG 27GL850?

Yes it would be a good choice.

 

 

If ur asking if i know of anything as good as the display i linked, the XV273X , for 1080p then the answer is no.

 

If ur asking for examples of 144hz 1440p displays, then yes.

 

The Asus VG27AQ is a good 1440p 144-165hz IPS display. Better than the GL850 imo.

Another cheaper option is the Viewsonic VX2758-2KP-MHD

Aye its a TV. Hmm, i got an old pic from before i moved house a few years ago and upgraded my PC, but the Display is the same. Pic was taken on an old crappy mobile so isnt the best.

I do intent to stream using the turing nvenc, will a 1080p be a better performer than a 1440p? or is the turing nvenc separated in encoder?
