27" vs 32" and 75Hz vs 144Hz monitor upgrade advise.

Hello, currently I have a 27" 1080p/60Hz monitor and I've been wanting to upgrade it for a while. It's primarily for gaming. I had my heart set on a 27" 1440p 144Hz, but then I realised I could buy a 32" for slightly more money so now I'm not sure what size to get.

I don't upgrade my GPU very often (GTX 1070) so I'll likely be playing modern demanding games at low refresh rates like 60hz. I do still play some older, less demanding games, so these should run closer to 144Hz. Does this make sense?

 

Or should I just buy a cheaper 75Hz Freesync/Gsync screen?

 

27" or 32"?

27 inches for 1440p is pretty nice. bigger isn't always better.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

If you sit a bit further away its better but this really depands on your needs. When I bought a 144hz Monitor i couldnt see the differnece to 60

Any Help is appricated! Please correct me if I´m wrong!

Sorry for grammer/spelling mistakes, but english is not my native language (it´s german in case you were curious) *expand to see builds*

 

Primary PC: *planned* CPU: AMD 5600X / 5800X | GPU: 3070ti (When released) | RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 2X16 = 32GB @ 3600MHZ DDR4 | MOBO: MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280 (Planning for custom watercooling in spring 2021 after I bought the GPU) | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD | SDD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB |

Everything thats not colourful I haven't bought yet.

 

Secondary PC: CPU:  INTEL Q8200S @ 2.33Ghz | GPU: GTX 750 ti / 760 | RAM: 4X2 = 8GB @ 800MHZ DDR2 OCZ Platinum | MOBO: ASUS P5E-VM SE | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280* | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB* | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD* | SSD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB* 

Everything marked with * is what I bought for the Primary PC and I'm just using it until I get all the parts.

I have both, I find 27" to be better for gaming because you don't have to move your head or eyes too much around when you sit close. 

32" better for content consumption.

I sit about 24" from my screen. Would a 32" screen be too big for gaming?
