1440p, but gaming @ 1080p

wowsocoolz

I want to use a 1440p monitor, I dont think my rig can support 1440p for all games I want to play
Will it look worse if I use a 1440p monitor @ 1080p resolution, compared to an actual 1080p monitor @ 1080p
How bad will it be, is it bearable?

Yes, what are your full system specifications? There are a multitude of options you can utilize to make gaming better and actually changing the native display resolution is the absolute last option.

It was bearable to me. BUT I have a 1440p ultra wide and I run the game in 16:9 windowed mode. As I found that made my eyes not hurt.

 

That being said it all depends on what games you do. I used to have a 2600x and a RX5700 and 16 Gigs of ram, I upgrade to a 5700x back in December. Out side of a few games the first setup worked for the most part. After the CPU upgrade things worked a bit better. Some titles recent titles not some much. Hell Divers 2 for example I had to play in the windowed mode other wise it made my eyes hurt.

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

You're going to have access to FSR in games that support it an in games that don't RSR at the driver level. FSR Quality mode is roughly 1080p.

Yes it is noticeable blur and not sharp, unless you play at Windows mode not full screen and not fill the entire screen.

Not the best idea, though yeah can use upscale for some games that would be heavy.

Depends what frame rate you want. If 60 FPS is OK, RX 5700 XT should be able to run that just fine at 1440p. If you want 120hz+ then yes you would have to play at low settings or use upscaling.

 

In personally don't think running at non native monitor resolution is as bad as some say it is. I do recommend in games that support it, let display settings be the native resolution and lower rendering resolution instead of lowering the resolution your PC sends to the monitor. It would look better, both with and without FSR. FSR do look better than without tho.

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. 
It matters that you don't just give up.”

Agree with @GuiltySpark_ that lowering the output resolution should be the last step when you need more fps. My first step usually is to enable upscaling on it's quality mode, in your case FSR. If that still isn't enough, drop some settings from ultra to high, maybe medium or go to lower quality FSR settings. If that still doesn't give you the performance you need, then you can think of lowering the render resolution.

If someone did not use reason to reach their conclusion in the first place, you cannot use reason to convince them otherwise.
