1080p @ 60 is still a good point to hit. there is no such thing as "entry level gaming" when it comes to resolution and frame rate so those people are idiots. some people are happy with 720p @ 30. it completely depends on the person and the computer.


i personally only aim for 1080p@60 because that's what my monitor supports.



Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

Entry level is pretty subjective. Although 1080@60 with atleast medium settings I consider that entry level, you can achieve that with less than a 1060 on most games

Entry level for me is around $500 worth. For that, you might get 1080 60 fps with "maybe" medium settings in games like bf1 and such games. Resolution has nothing to do with it really, it´s the graphic settings that matter.

I've been playing with my FPS locked at 60 with all ultra settings on a 1920x1080 monitor for some time now (imo it looks great), i don't plan on stepping up until a single GPU can do the same at 4k.  That upgrade is really going to hurt my savings with the GPU+monitor at once lol
