Monitor for turn based games?

Ashaman
 Share

Hello, this is my first time on the forum. I was wondering if I could tap into your sage like wisdom to get some help on a monitor to suite my purpose.

 

First my Specs:

i7-3930k cpu

ASUS X79 e ws mono

*PNY 780ti GPU

16gb ram

21" 1080p monitor.

 

Essentially I'm looking to upgrade my monitor to something wider. I've started to have more time to myself to actually play some games and I'm getting back into tactician/ turn based games and the occasional Counter Strike GO. I would like to upgrade my monitor to something bigger 32"+ and wanted to know what my current build could handle. What kind of specs should I be looking for. I am lost trying to understand all of it.

 

My budget would be $800 CAD and I care about smooth gameplay over crisp images. Good warranty is also desirable. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

A 770 (or 780Ti...?) isn't going to be particularly great at 1440p to say the least, but I personally wouldn't recommend exceeding 27" with 1080p. If you're into the ultrawide 21:9 thing, you could look for an IPS 1440p monitor, or if you don't care for that, just look for something that's 1080p 60+ Hz.

Thank you I always mix that card up. It's actually a 780ti PNY. I will correct my original post.

So perhaps my goal should be upgrading my GPU first then go for the monitor I want.

I would get a monitor that you like that isn't overkill for your build, so something like 1080p or even 1440p would be acceptable in my eyes, or even 75Hz or greater refresh rate. If you get a good monitor, you might just be unable to take full advantage of the monitor's capabilities, in which case you could then focus on upgrading your GPU.
