Yeah I get screen tearing when I'm playing Pubg on low settings because medium is not smooth enough so I'm forced to deal with it.

The Asus PG278Q is what I have in my wish list right now and it does goe for 580 euros, but I am able to find it used right now so that should save me 200 euros atleast.

So you do you think it's a waste to use an rtx 2070 with 1080p ? 

And I still have the choice to switch to 1080p on some games that I want to reach that 144hz?
(asking this because running anything lower that my 1080p recommended on this monitor I have right now looks stretched and very bad)

 

 

The PG278QR as mentioned above is a newer model and 165Hz. Dunno if you can find one of those. 20 Hz won’t be too noticeable at that high anyways. Also, it only stretches if you select an aspect ratio other than 16:9. For instance, 1280x720 is 16:9. It won’t be stretched but on a 24” monitor it probably looks like crap. But yes, if you so desire you can move down to 1080p. It’ll just be 1080p on a 27” monitor, so it’ll be very low pixels per inch.

Just for the record, I do think a 2070 on 1080p is a waste. Might as well save some money and. Get a 1070/1070 Ti for €230-300 used at that point.

Hello,

I'm asking for personal opinions on the best way to utilize a 2070.
I'm getting the card next year or an amd alternative in the same bracket (depending on what AMD will bring out), and I defenitly wont be paring it with my 1080p 60hz monitor.

I play a mix of competetive games and games and single player games so I'm torn between 1440p and 144hz @ 1080p

Ofcource I can get a monitor who supports all of that but with Gsync it could get very expensive since I will be blowing all my budget on the card

Which monitor are you using with this card or a similiar one like the GTX 1080?

Oh and I already suffer from screen tearing with my 1050 2gb so when is Gsync a must here ? 

ofcourse my choice of monitors will vary if I go for an AMD card instead but so far it seems like the 2070 is the goal here.

My specs are : 
Ryzen 5 2600 @ 4.1 Ghz

16gb ddr4 @ 2666hz

Msi AB350 pro 4 micro atx

be quiet Dark rock pro 4

Gtx 10502gb

 

 

Thanks.

When I had my 1080, I used a 1440p 144hz monitor and it was a great combo. I love the extra resolution of 1440p but I also wanted high refresh rate. No, you’re not able to run ultra settings, but everyone knows ultra settings aren’t just extra crap that takes frames anyways. High is plenty good looking. And esports titles are easy to run anyways. I found a used monitor that had g-sync (Asus PG278Q) for $320, though new I believe similar goes for about $600. If you want to keep cost lower, you can pass on g-sync (tearing is caused by too high a frame rate, not too low).

Thanks. 

a 2070 can do 1440p 144Hz well, depending on the game played. Of course in a poorly optimized/hard to run game like Just Cause 4 a 2070 will get around 50 fps at 1440p max. You should be able to take advantage of a 144Hz monitor in other games. Screen tearing is mostly mitigated with 144Hz and personally I don’t find GSync to offer much benefit.

I want to say thats one of a overkill setup but I will be forced to use my 1080p 60hz monitor with the card for atleast a couple of months after buying so I cant hate :D XD
i used to run my 8gb of ram @3200mhz but since upgrading to 4 sticks I can't higher that 2888 :(

Gaming z 2070 here ocd.   I have a pg278qr with 165hz on at 1440p

 

Play most of my games at ultra, but can tell could use more horsepower.   High  level of detail is fine though
