1080p 144Hz vs 1440p 144Hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I just want to know if I should get a 1080p 144Hz monitor or 1440p 144Hz monitor for my PC. I have a GTX 1070 and an i5 6600K. I dont think it can run many AAA games at 1440p 144Hz but it can run fps games at that frame tate. But if I get a 1440p 60Hz monitor, I won't be able to play first person shooters at 144Hz, which is very essential. Any reply will be appreciated.

I would go with 1440p 144Hz any day.

It's even better if that monitor is g-sync.

YOU DON'T NEED 144hz TO PLAY FPS GAMES!!!

Now that my rant is over, I would go for a 1440p 60hz, and like @Simon771 said, get G-Sync on it.

Why is 144 hz FPS essential?? 

 

Are you a professional gamer? 

 

What? I see this way too often. So stupid.

You can change monitor refresh rate you know

I would go with 1440p because there is no point in 1080p if you can afford 1440p

You kids probably haven't been blessed with 144Hz. Doesn't matter if you're a pro or not.

144hz is a luxury. I think it's worth it and I like it so I bought it. People can complain and say 60hz this and that. If you have the cash and want it then get it. It's noticeable.

Even so, 144hz looks alot smoother than 60fps.

You might think 60fps looks smooth to start with, but 144 is just so much smoother, pro gamer or not.

That's simply not the argument being made. 

 

"essential" is the word to focus on. Sure it's better to have a 144 hz monitor and be able to push those frames. Essential? nah.

It is essential once you have used it. It's like multiple displays, you can never go back after having it.

Have you ever used 144hz? Besides at a con or at a friend's house or something? Trust me, its noticeable, and you cannot go back once you switch to it.

I play on 165Hz 1440p with G-Sync with GTX 1060....

 

1.) 1070 is more than capable to handle 1440p 144Hz if you are willing to lower some ULTRA settings to HIGH.

2.) There is no visual difference or advantage in games 1080p vs 1440p, the main difference is the pixel density which means that you dont need to use as much AA on 1440p as you would on 1080p display of the same size, however using more AA on 1080p still gets you better performance than using little AA on 1440p display.

3.) Main advantage of 1440p is on desktop where you are now capable of having more windows opened without needing to switch between them or using other monitor for extra window.

4.) G-Sync is nice but it is not worth the price but if you got the money why not? Just be aware that main advantage of it is if you play up to around 120FPS after that the difference between G-Sync ON or OFF is minimal as the tearing is not so apparent above 120FPS.

5.) If your focus is mainly gaming then I would probably look more into the new 240Hz 1080p displays as they seem simmilarily priced to 144Hz 1440p ones.

6.) Yes 144Hz is HUGE HUGE HUGE difference vs 60Hz... I couldnt believe it before I saw it on my own eyes as well. It is a requirement? Definitely not but I wouldnt want to go back to 60Hz now.

I was more referring to the multi-monitor thing. 

 

I would agree with the refresh rate. Sort of like going from a powerhouse computer to a potato - your love for gaming will not be the same. 

 

It's still subjective.

As someone who plays games and also likes to be productive, I would not be able to live without multiple displays anymore. I always have spotify and chrome on one, discord one on, and the game on the middle one. It makes using all apps easier because alt-tabbing takes so long for me for some reason (5-6 seconds idk).

productivity is another story, entirely. 

 

there is a good reason we equip everyone at our company with multi-monitors - because you're more efficient, and arguably, even more accurate.

not completely true. I went back to one display last september because my desk didn't have enough room to look organized with two monitors and the two monitors were different.

The human eye can see higher than 60 hz but somewhere between 144hz and 60hz, there is a refresh rate where you won't be able to see any difference for it and higher refresh rates. I don't know which one that is but what I'm saying is that the benefit from 144hz is if you have powerful hardware with a 60hz monitor, you will get screen tearing above 60fps because it is over the refresh rate. Without G-Sync or freesync, the only option is to enable VSync in the game settings but that slows down the game by a lot. the 144hz is just extra headroom so you don't see screen tearing.
