1440p monitor vs 3 1080p monitors?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What's the best monitor setup given the circumstances that 3 1080p IPS monitors are almost at the same price bracket as a single 1440p IPS monitor?

For what use? Gaming or working? For gaming I would go with the 1440p since it would be easier to run than 3 1080p monitors and I don't find multi-monitor setups to be useful for gaming. For working I would say 3 1080p monitors easy. I couldn't imagine coding on only 1 screen.

Not a fan of multimonitors

 

I would either pick a 1440p monitor or a 21:9 1440p ultrawide if I wanted surround

how about a 1440p monitor and a 1080p or 900p(got one in stock) monitor? Is that a better choice?

I feel like your getting more value for 3 x 1080p. Unless you just do gaming it can be really useful in multitasking(it's still really good in gaming though with that massive pov). At the current moment I have 2 x 1080p monitors but I should be getting a 3rd soon. :)

Depends what you need multi monitors for

 

I love my 27" 1440p monitor for gaming, and I currently use a random 19" acer widescreen monitor I have lyring around to do second monitor duties, perhaps displaying a YouTube video, my music, or for a map in battlefield

If you still have a 900p or 1080p monitor then get the 1440p monitor. Asymmetrical multi-monitor setups always worked really well for me, and a single 1440p monitor is awesome for gaming as well.

It really depends. For me, I do a lot of here in there. Sometimes gaming, sometimes browsing, ect. So I would go for the 3 x 1080p, however if you use your pc 70%+ of the time gaming then a 1440p monitor is the answer without even thinking.

Also make sure that your gpu could handle 1440p if you're thinking about that option. 1440p can put down quite a bit on performance especially if you want to get another one in the future.

1x 1080p 24" G-Sync monitor.

 

 

so you can use DSR 4k in old games and have higher fps in new games.

 

 

 

DSR does not support 1440p yet. (so you have to use the old school way witch is not as good as DSR)

I would rather get a 144Hz 1080p. G-sync in 1080p isn't worth it IMO.

G-sync 1080p 144hz 1ms is the sweet spot!! 

 

 

G-sync is worth it!!! if you like FPS and Racing games.

 

 

 

1080p = Higher fps and DSR

 

1440p = Less fps and no DSR

Get a 27 Inch 1440p PLS Monitor for 300USD + Free shipping..QNIX 2710 (I own one myself it's incredibly gorgeous and got mine clocked @120hz)

There are a shit load of reviews for this monitor and i thought it would be too good to be true, nevertheless i bought one and was absolutely blown away by the color quality of this monitor. + You can clock it to a 120HZ.. 

 

 

Do some research for this monitor http://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/official-the-qnix-x-star-1440p-monitor-club

Also if you buy one, be sure to buy the single input monitor with Dual link dvi only, else you will not be able to overclock your monitor.

 

Btw: YouTube video's don't do this monitors color quality justice. I can tell you that.

 

If you want more info about this monitor, feel free to ask me :)

Peripheral vision in games and distributed real estate when not is in my experience infinity more valuable.
