Is it worth the decrease in hz for a 1440p monitor compared to a 1080p monitor?

bacone

Compared to a 240hz 1080p monitor, would a 1440p 165hz monitor be worse?  I don't know if this is important or not but, my laptop specs are AMD Ryzen 9 5900 and RTX 3050.

You have a stronger cpu than gpu so 1080p 240 may work better. But they are both good options depending on what you play and what type of experience you want.

I plan on playing Valorant/FPS games, I’m going for preformance + good visual. Idk if this is relevant but I’m trying to up the saturation

I would not go to 1440p with a 3050 mobile.

For games like that 240hz will be way more beneficial. A 3050 mobile will probably struggle with higher than 1080p anyway in anything super heavy.

As long as you stay in a higher refresh rate, and not have to drop to 60Hz, then I'd say 1440p lower refresh is better.

 

With your particular example of 1080p 240Hz vs. 1440p 165Hz, I'd recommend the 1440p variant to 90% of people.

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