Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im looking for a monitor with at least:

  • 2k resolution(2560 x 1440p)
  • 144hz
  • Gsync
  • Thin bezels are highly preferable 
  • doesn't matter if its TN I don't plan to be looking at it from any angles.

im planning to connect my Predator Helios 300 to this monitor when i'm at home:

  • intel i7 7th gen
  • gtx 1060
  • 16gb of ram

The Asus PG278QR would be a good choice however, it is a bit pricey.

Lol driving 1440p 144Hz with a 1060

Such monitors are not really 'midrange'

The most affordable one would be a Dell S2417DG

@huilun02 can the 1060 not handle it ? 0.0 should have be looking more at 1080p monitors instead?

The 1060 will at best produce about 60fps at 1440p unless its some easier game to run (CSGO/mobas)

At worst its going to dip below the Gsync floor and each frame will be doubled

If you are planning to upgrade to something like a 1080/Ti or equivalent, then yes getting a 1440p 144Hz display now will save you money in the long run

But yes a 1060 will be better suited to flex the capability of a 1080p 144Hz display instead. Price of 1080p Gsync displays are awful in comparison though.

are you assuming that graphic settings would be maxed?

I'm more of an action rpg kinda fan. I play stuff like dark souls 3, the witcher 3, nioh, FF 15, AS origins and Monster Hunter world when it comes out in a couple weeks. 

I also play a lot of league of legends which was one of the reasons I want the high refresh rates. The resolution is for when I want to play some open world rpgs or MMOs.

In the future I do plan to build a pc with a gtx 1080/Ti, maybe 2 if I can get it.

Not even maxed, like high-ish

Those ARPG are certainly not easy to push graphics wise

Yup so I'm rethinking the 2k resolution now. What about getting the 2k monitor but setting it to 1080p so I can get more fps while still saving in the long run?

That will result in pixel interpolation. The image will not look crisp

I have used my 1440p at 1080p res in the past, it isnt terrible (i barely notice it) In your case, if you can afford it, I would go with 1440p 144hz (mine costed 240 usd used) use the 1440p for your mobas, and use the 1080p whenever it is needed.
