Which monitor should I get? (1440p 75Hz or 1080p 144Hz)

Hello, everyone!

 

I'm just wondering, which monitor should I choose? Here are my options:

 

  1. ViewSonic Gaming VX2458-C-MHD  (144Hz, 1080p, FreeSync, 24", Curved)

  2. AOC Gaming Q3279VWF (75Hz, 1440p, FreeSync, 32")

 

I will mostly play FPS and Racing games, 60-75 FPS are way more than enough for me, been playing games at under 30 FPS all my life lol

 

Even tho the size of the AOC monitor concerns me (͠≖ ͜ʖ͠≖), maybe I wont be able to see everything that is on screen, but that significant boost in resolution would be awesome.

 

If somebody is wondering, I will get an Sapphire R9 Fury. (4GB HBM)

Found an good deal for it, ~180$.

 

Thanks in advance!

Don't... it's one outdated card that makes poor sense nowadays, its a RX 480 that uses twice as much power... considering you can get RX 570 for cheap nowadays no point going used.

 

I'd go 1440p with a 1070 Ti or something now that nVidia is finally going to add FreeSync support.

Even without FreeSync, a 1070Ti should be able to push 1440p75 without any problems.

The FreeSync thing comes with a caveat that it might not be enabled for that monitor. But even then there are ways to reduce/eliminate tearing without it:

  • Turn on Fast Sync and ensure you can push past the refresh rate or higher
  • Play on either windowed or borderless windowed, since Windows forces triple buffer + VSync when rendering windows. Though this comes with the caveat that you'll always have one frame of latency.

I game on a 43” 1080p 60hz. The size is great. I can’t stand 32”. It’s freaking tiny. just saying that you  probably won’t have any problems seeing everything on screen.
