What resolution should I get for a 32" display?

Ive been thinking of upgrading my 21 inch acre display at 75hz 1080p to a 185 hz 32" 1080p display. I sit roughly around 24" from the display and im not sure if I should invest in 1440p for 100$ more. The monitor I intend on buy-in go a sceptre 32" any thoughts?

What are you doing with it?   What do you have pushing it?  Specs?

 

I'd go 1440p for 32, at least.  But if you're just gaming you may not notice the pixelation as much as with text.

Buying a new Display nowadays u should be aiming for 1440p unless u have a particularly 'entry level' gaming system aimed at 1080p.

 

At 32" you have limited 'reviewed' options, the more common size is 27".

 

A family member of mine recently asked by advice on a display, they prefer large displays, their current one is an ancient 1080p 32" CCFL TV, they didnt want to go smaller, thankfully the Dell S3220DGF was just within budget, and so they'll likely get that.

 

There are other options vs a 32" 16:9 display, namely 34" and 38" 21:9 ultrawides, however they are considerably more expensive.

 

Read the below thread for further info on how to pick urself a display.

32" 1440p ppi is same as 24" 1080p

So either 1440p or higher, 1080p limit is imo 27"

... but I'm no expert

here's a better question; for 240USD$,  

 

should I go for

32" 185hz 1080p.    

or            

27" 144hz 1440p.

 

im inclined to say the bigger one but im not entirely sure

Yup, that! Hopefully Dell Gaming S2721DGF 

 

Certainly not 32" 1080p - that is badly pixelated 

... but I'm no expert

For a 32"? At least 1440p (ideal!), 4K only if you have great eyesight, even better eyesight than 27" 1440p.

32" 1440p is optimal.

but will the 1650 super handle 1440p?

 

Not in games in general... maybe some games at medium-low setings.

Btw "ultra" is pointless.

Probably 32" 1080p then, with your budget and GPU.  That 1650 isn't going to push a 1440p monitor for shit.

 

Edit:  You can go with a 1440p for the future, if you're going to upgrade the GPU and do the scaling tricks to run 1080p on it for the time being, etc.

Very few people like 1080p@32”. Such folks exist though.  You’ve got a 1650S which should drive 1080p gaming fine but might struggle with 1440p gaming.  The 1650S will drive non gaming 1440p fine though.  Myself I would probably buy the 1440p and be prepared to turn the Rez down to 1080p for some games.

It’s more monitor than you have card for, but that’s not an awful situation.  1440p@144 can be both a 1440p@60 and a 1080p at above 60hz.  You can pick what you want to do.  1440p@60hz for non gaming, 1080p@whatever fps you can get above 60hz for gaming.  I doubt you’ll see 144hz very often but it’s got freesynch.  Could hit 90hz quite frequently.
