Curved, 144hz or 2K?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am getting a second monitor.

 

24 inch in size, should it be:

A. 1080p, 60hz, curved

B. 1080p, 144hz, flat

C. 1440p, 60hz, flat.

 

My current monitor:

1080p, 144hz, curved

For videos/media and multitasking, 1440p is so much better IMO. For gaming higher refresh rate is always better, but you say that you already have a 144Hz one and I doubt you want to run games on both at the same time. So I would say 1440p/60Hz.

Why not identical monitor if I may ask?

Would be ideal but it's expensive, $300!

Yea I do a lot of photo editing too, so that would probably be better. Wouldn't a flat panel look weird with a curved one though? Also would windows be able to run one at 144hz and one at 60hz?

Yes, although color accuracy might be pretty important for that too.

Not sure, that's personal preference TBH.

I'm using that exact setup, 1080/144 primarily for gaming and 1440/60 primarily for browsing/media etc, and I haven't had any issues. The only issue I have heard is that some people have framerate problems if they run GPU accelerated content on the 60Hz while gaming in windowed mode on the 144Hz. If you game in fullscreen that should be a non-issue though.

Fair enough, well yea thank you for your help! Will decide soon, thinking 144hz isnt needed and 2K might be worth it.
