as someone who never experienced anything beyond 1080p 60hz ( 70% of the time on a 720p 50hz laptop ) which would feel like a better experience ? the 4k with all those pixels or 1440p with all those hertz ?

Long story short. I have a hard time stepping down to 60hz after stepping up. Especially in combo with freesync.

A GPU+monitor combo is quite expencive regardless if it freesync or Gsync. Both examples have the same performance. Both are IPS for a better picture quality than TN panels.

Yes. I helped my friend set up his new monitor, and as soon as I switched it to 144hz, the difference in windows 10 was HUGE, more so in fast paced games. You can notice the 144hz on anything you do on your computer(i.e browse the internet, play games etc)

yeah i was looking at that same Acer 1440p monitor but i also saw that the similar 4K 60hz one isnt too expensive too ( around same price ) and was wondering which would be better for me

What budget are you working with for you PC? Its mostly the deciding factor. 

 

Id grab 1440p over 4k as very few GPUs can actually drive a 4k panel really well (as in do more than 60fps in games)

Does youtube support 144 hz ? or even 120 hz videos ?

What are your system specs? If you have a GPU that's not capable of running 4k in games well(i.e anything other than a RTX 2080Ti/Titan V) then you should go for the 1440p 144Hz monitor. Also, if your GPU cant push out 144hz at 1440p in games, then it may be worth upgrading that as well

 

EDIT: Didn't know you didn't already have a computer, sorry

Not that I know of. Generally moving the mouse around was very very smooth compared to 60Hz, and when I switched back to 60Hz, it was like using a broken monitor.

Well. DLSS 2160p (4k) is said to be roughly the same as 1800p in terms of image quality, with Pros and Cons on both side, and performance. Make what you will of that.

 

Im guessing you are going all out on this build? Ill throw together a suggestion or two.

planning to get either 2080 or 1080ti, and if the DLSS and ray tracing turns out to be worth it, ill get the 2080Ti

May be better to go ryzen on this one, it performs very similar to intel in games at 1440p, and is way cheaper.

 

I did the math for the 2700x and at most ill be saving 100$ over the 8700k so imo its not that much different so imma go with the 8700k and delid it, unless 7nm ryzen proves all the hype its been getting the past couple months

Ryzen performs basically the same as intel at 1440p though(+- 1-2% fps). Still strongly believe 7nm ryzen will be very good so going for AM4 may prove to be a better choice. 8700k has no real benefit here against ryzen except at 1080p where it still is better for gaming.
